Fellowship Design

India Fellow has the following four major aspects:

1. Working at grassroots: Fellows spend most of their time (17 months) working at grassroots with an organization committed to bringing social change. This can be anywhere across the country. The fellow is expected to live in their work area, typically a rural or a peri-urban setup, and work as a team member to understand the complexities.

2. Training: India Fellow has 45 days of residential training, spread across the duration of 18 months. This is divided into 3 parts of 15 days each at the start, middle, and end of the journey. The India Fellow pedagogy is unique; engages a strong collective of varied sector leaders, academicians, and practitioners.

3. Constant engagement: Throughout the duration, fellows document their observations, experiences, and insights; engage in regular virtual learning modules, online courses, and fundraising to build a holistic understanding of the sector and gain crucial skill sets.

4. Mentorship: Every fellow is exposed to a pool of mentors, who are experts with huge experience in their domain. Along with that, the fellowship ecosystem consists of facilitators, alumni, and experienced professionals who are available to interact with the fellows to enrich their experience.
