Applications Open: Ashoka University’s Young India Fellowship

Dear readers,

Today we write to you with an exclusive newsletter on the Young India Fellowship (YIF), Ashoka University. 

A Yearlong Fellowship. A Fellow For Life.

Started in 2011, the YIF grooms socially conscious leaders and change makers for the 21st century. Offered as Ashoka University’s flagship postgraduate diploma in liberal studies, the YIF is unlike any other graduate-level academic programme. It gives Fellows an opportunity to explore multiple academic and professional avenues within a year. The curriculum is multidisciplinary and the learning opportunities are multidimensional.

Through the YIF, several Fellows have discovered their passion and many have switched their academic or professional trajectories.

Collaborations with leading institutions from across the world are focused on faculty, student and curriculum exchange. These include the University of Pennsylvania; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; King's College, London; Sciences Po, Paris; University of California, Berkeley; Trinity College, Dublin; Wellesley College and Yale University.
