Summer programs are important parts of the nurture program for KVPY Fellows. These are meant to expose the Fellows to methods of scientific research and inculcate in them an abiding interest in doing scientific research. These are normally organized during the summer vacation, when KVPY Fellows spend one or two weeks in scientific institutions listening to lectures by experts in different fields of science, engineering or medicine, see things in a research environment, science in action, watch scientists at work, interact with scientists, visit nearby scientific research laboratories and institutions, and exchange views with other research students. Sometimes Fellows with specific interest are associated with individual scientists who talk to them about their interest, help them clear their doubts, give them problem to work out, let them to do experiments, and tell them about the future scope in the area of their interest.

The summer Program for KVPY Fellows in the Basic Science Stream is arranged either at Bangalore or Kolkataor Allahabad or Mumbai or Pune or Mohali or Trivandrum for One //two weeks.
The Summer Program KVPY Fellows in the Engineering Stream is organized by IIT-Bombay.
