Mission Statement

WINStep Forward aims to inspire upcoming generations of researchers to tackle societal problems by enriching their scientific skill set to function on a more globally informed scale. This can only be achieved by equipping the next generation of researchers with a breadth of scientific knowledge derived from a more global scientific mindset that encourages a focus on the betterment of humanity.

Description

WSF was founded by Dr. Aseem Ansari, Professor of Chemical Genomics and Synthetic Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014. WSF is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency organized under the laws of the State of Wisconsin. The inspiration sparked after Dr. Ansari spent some time on his managing the Khorana and SN Bose Scholar Exchange Programs, and saw the potential for reaching greater heights with more people working to help develop the programs. With the support through partnership with the Government of India (Department of Biotechnology -DBT and Science and Engineering Research Board -SERB) and Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF),WSF Forward was born.

Since its inception, WSF has grown from only managing Scholar Exchange Programs to initiating a new training program called "Technology Transfer," to partnering with Indian Organizations focusing on agricultural sciences in a movement referred to "Rural Development," and head starting Sci-ROI, a nonprofit that promotes science and technology between India and the USA amongst post PhD graduates and policy makers in India. In the next 5 years, WSF's vision is expanding to include virtual education network for young scholars, entrepreneurial resources in the STEM sector, and professional development courses and workshops for the youth.
