Get first hand experience of ground challenges immersing with grassroots organizations spread across the length and breadth of the country. Get supported throughout the journey with trainings, reflection meets and mentor-ship. As you embark on a career of social change, you will find this network of co-fellows, alumni, trainers, organizations and mentors extremely valuable. Ideas will be created, everyday you will know yourself a little better, you will discover what you want to do with your own lives and learn to turn your ideas into reality. Read the thoughtful blogs by our fellows who are currently on the field experiencing all of this at Fellow Blogs.

India needs talented young leaders who have deep exposure to India’s broader realities; who understand the challenges and opportunities present in diverse environments; who have the empathy, skills and determination to create social good. India Fellow is a platform which helps you discover your own journeys towards becoming Socially Conscious Leaders of tomorrow.

The program has 3 tightly knit components of Training, Grassroots Work and Mentorship.

Interactions with experts from diverse walks of life
– Training on design thinking, development theories, management topics and personal leadership styles and skills
– Travel workshops and rural immersions for accelerated learning and gaining better perspectives
– Peer learning and sharing with co-fellows and networking with mentors, subject matter experts, alumni and NGOs
The fellow works on a field assignment with an authentic and committed grassroots organization. Living in their work areas, typically rural setups and working on a specific role, the fellow not only learns but also impacts the organization in myriad ways by bringing in their skills and enthusiasm. The organization supports the fellow with a monthly stipend of Rs. 15,000 for living expenses. Know more about our host organizations here.
Every fellow will be assigned a mentor. A mentor is an expert with considerable experience in their domain and will personally be a friend philosopher and guide to the fellow in his/her journey. Our mentors identify the criticality and need of investing in grooming the country’s youth and have benevolently part-taken in the responsibility of  guiding the India Fellows in their journey. Know more about them here.
India Fellow is for those who are not afraid to get lost or confused; those who believe that not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. So apply today to get lost and discover your journey. We look forward to reading your applications.
