Adapting to the new normal will require an empathetic, collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to problem solving and leadership. The Young India Fellowship (YIF) - the essence of an Ashoka education, offered as a postgraduate diploma in liberal studies - is a meaningful way for young people from India and abroad to prepare themselves for the future. Since 2011, the YIF has groomed over 1700 socially conscious leaders and change-makers for the 21st century.
The YIF is unlike any other academic programme. Fellows come from diverse academic, professional, socio-economic and geographical backgrounds. Within a year, they engage with diverse areas of study, research and practice, enabled by leading thinkers and scholars of our time. This often helps them reimagine themselves and discover their passions.
