Internship Details

About Internship:

Development of India is responsibility of everyone – NGOs, government, corporate, enterprises and most importantly of its citizens. Our belief is that in each and every sector, India needs talented young leaders who have had deep exposure to India’s broader realities, who understand the challenges and opportunities presented in diverse environments that have the empathy, skills and determination to create social good. Our future bankers, scientists, bureaucrats, teachers, entrepreneurs need this learning experience.

A lot of young people are making a conscious career choice to work in the development sector. However there are many who have not considered their role in social development and therefore can tremendously benefit from an experiential learning program that can help them find their own path to contribute to social change irrespective of whether they choose a career in NGO, businesses or government.

The India Fellow is a 13-month full-time paid fellowship program that has the following three major aspects:

1] Training and Peer-learning:
The fellowship has approximately 7 weeks of training spread over the duration of 13 months where fellows meet and learn about Project Management, Development Theory & Practice, Design Thinking, Systems Practice and Self-efficacy through Creative methods, Work skills/knowledge and Personal leadership.

2] Work Assignment with a Grassroots Organization:
Fellows spend most of their time with a reputed, authentic and committed organization working on various social issues. During this, the fellow will be living in their work areas, typically rural setups, and working on a specific role. The immersion is a powerful experience for fellows to look inwards as well as understand issues India faces at large. The organization supports the fellow with a monthly stipend of Rs. 15,000 for living expenses.

3] Mentor-ship:
Every fellow is supported with a mentor who is an expert in their domain and will personally be a philosopher and guide to the fellow in his/her journey. Along with that, the fellowship ecosystem consists of sector leaders, alumni and personnel from various organizations who are constantly available and interacting with fellows to enrich their experience.
