Beyond YIF: Career Tracker
YIF alumni are making their mark in top organisations across public, private and social sectors. They can be found at leading multinationals such as BCG, The Gates Foundation, McKinsey, Microsoft, START TV, TIME Magazine, and the World Bank. In India, acclaimed organisations like Avendus Capital, Cipla and Genpact count Ashoka alumni among their ranks.
Social sector organisations including Goonj, Pradan, Pratham, Samaj Pragati Sahyog and Teach for India, absorb Fellows into their organisations each year. YIF alumni have also initiated their own start-ups, including Karmantik, Khetify, Kahaani Wale and Dino.
Many alumni have gone on for further studies to premier global research universities like University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Harvard University, Princeton University, Stanford University and Yale University, and been awarded prestigious scholarships, such as the Chevening, Commonwealth, Fulbright and Rhodes Scholarships.
At the Young India Fellowship, 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. A combination of industry experience coupled with mentoring by industry experts helps the Fellows build their network in the sector they are interested in. Highlighted below are some of the sectors people have moved to after completing their graduate or postgraduate studies.
