India Fellow is a 13-month social leadership program. It includes working full time with a grassroots organization on a specific social issue. This, together with classroom training, peer sharing and mentorship empowers the fellows to find their leadership potential, shape careers, and in the process make a positive impact on our society. The application process for the next cohort of India Fellows is open, and the fellowship starts February 2018.
During the journey, the fellows gain deep insights and develop varied perspectives into the country, it’s people and the functioning; whilst contributing meaningfully to the host organizations’ social change mission. Also they are supported by a strong alumni network and mentors in their pursuit.
A combination of an immersive grassroots experience with a credible non profit along with training and mentoring will come together to help bring out the best in them. You can know more about the fellowship design here.
