Alumni Trajectories

We recognise the potential an engineer has for social development, a humanities graduate has for starting a new venture or a commerce graduate has for literature. Given the multidisciplinary and multidimensional nature of the YIF, many Fellows, either during or after the Fellowship, end up switching their career trajectories.



The illustration below aims to give a broad sense of how YIF alumni have switched their career trajectories: 




What Alumni Do Post-YIF

Alumni have pursued and excelled in a diverse set of career paths.

From completing further education across diverse disciplines and securing prestigious scholarships, to starting organizations and working with leading private and public sector institutions across the world, it is very likely that you will find a YIF alumnus or alumnna who is pursuing a trajectory that you’d like to.
