MVA stated that contributions from students all over the world will be welcomed. Ages 13 to 17 and 18 to 21 will be taken into account when evaluating them.

The ISRO lunar program's worldwide influence will be increased, and more international cooperation will be promoted, according to MVA, who stated that this is the common objective of these efforts. The two organisations are working together to concentrate on the global side of lunar exploration and to find, communicate with, and inspire young people to concentrate on the benefits that each lunar mission brings to the entire globe.
"The Chandrayaan-3 mission is going to be an important milestone in the Indian space programme, and is aimed at demonstrating the critical technologies to land a spacecraft on the south pole of the moon," said Sudheer Kumar N., director, Capacity Building and Public Outreach, ISRO. The project includes vital technology that should be accessible to young people worldwide to promote a scientific outlook on moon missions.
