More Information

The Gandhi Fellowship Program is a two-year Fellowship program for talented youngsters from India's top colleges

The program is rooted in the belief that as a nation it is important to develop a cadre of leaders exposed to the complexities of bringing change in social and public systems. The Gandhi Fellowship Program is designed to provide youth with the opportunity for personal transformation through self-discovery and thereby, contribute to the causes surrounding them. It creates a legitimate space for young people to engage with social issues in a real manner and devote their energies to bring about school change through their tenure and effectively lead complex public systems in the future.

2 Years, 5 Schools, 1,000 Children and the Gandhi Fellow

As a catalyst for school change, each fellow brings change in 5 schools by being a resource person for the school principals and by potentially impacting the lives of 1,000 children. Fellows assist teachers and identify when and where Headmasters (Principals) need extra support. Fellows interact and work with teachers, community members and education officials towards the goal of creating model schools.

Who are they looking for

They are looking for students of top colleges across India who have demonstrated leadership quality through their work in both academic as well as extracurricular activities.

Extracurricular leadership can be identified in the form of school captain of sports / art club teams, house captain, president or secretary of college events, participation at state / national / international level competitions.

Entrepreneurial activities will be considered for leadership experience.
