Welcome to the Indian Students Association at Heidelberg!
HISA is a non-profit organization established in 2003 by
the Indian students in Heidelberg, Germany and runs solely on volunteer donations. HISA is now officially recognized by the University of Heidelberg as an international
organization has 531 members, major proportion consists of students from educational institutions, namely
German Cancer Research Centre (DFKZ), University
of Heidelberg, European Molecular Biology laboratory (EMBL),
Max Planck Institutes (MPI), SRH, etc.
Though the name
of our association gives a first impression of a student organization, significant number of our member includes professionals from companies like SAP and BASF, IBM, etc. Also membership is not restricted to
Indians but also open to all nationalities.
HISA is driven by enthusiastic
committee members who work voluntarily to achieve the objectives of the organization. The posts in the HISA committee
include President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Cultural secretary, and the tenure
of each committee is one year. Every year, prospective candidates for above posts are nominated by the members and the
committee members are eventually elected by all HISA members via formal election procedures, dictated by our constitution.
