The awards by the Society are generally first awards in the career of any student, particularly at research level. Awards from the Society are considered very prestigious and students look forward to the awards. The participation of scientific community in the Society's activities at various levels is voluntary and based on the Fair practices of the Society. All the Scientists associated with the Society's activities and all the participants have acknowledged this aspect. Awards from the Society have helped many students in furthering their careers.
More than 40 awards are presented each year
The Society's activities started in 2001 with selection of one young scientist (researcher) from the field of chemistry and giving KVRSS research award. As the Society grew, the number of categories (scientific disciplines) and corresponding awards increased. Programs for school students were started in 2004 and now the Society gives more than 40 awards in various categories every year.
