India Fellow Social Leadership Program 2024-25: Program Design

Over the 18-month duration, the fellows are engaged full-time. This includes: 

  • Working with Communities: India Fellows spend most of their time working at the grassroots with leading social organizations (typically in a rural or a peri-urban setup) committed to bringing positive change. This powerful experience inculcates sensitivity, consciousness, and a deeper understanding of society.
  • Training: India Fellow has 8 weeks of residential training, spread across 18 months. All the fellows must come together at a common place for these. This is divided into four parts, every six months into the journey – induction, midpoint, travel workshop, and endpoint. 
  • Continuous Learning: To ensure a balance between action and reflection, throughout the 18 months, fellows document their observations, experiences and insights as blogs/vlogs/podcasts. There are virtual sessions with mentors, online courses, and collective fundraising. All this builds a holistic understanding of civil society action and develops crucial skills. 
  • Mentorship: Every fellow is exposed to a pool of mentors, who are experts with deep experience in their domain. Along with that, the fellowship ecosystem consists of facilitators and experienced professionals who are available to interact with the fellows to enrich their experience.
  • Fundraising: The cost to select and nurture a fellow through this unique journey is INR 3,00,000. During their 18-month fellowship, the fellows work along with the India Fellow team in a collective fundraiser, to raise this sum for the cohort that follows them.
