Selection Timeline: Class of 2024
The YIF admissions process is split into two rounds. Each round accepts applications within a specified time-frame and selects Fellows from the pool of submitted applications in that round. Please note that you can apply only once in the admissions cycle and only in one round. In case you miss the early round deadline, you can complete your application before the final round deadline.
About Rolling Assessments | We encourage candidates to apply early, even within a round. Application assessments and interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis, implying that applications will be assessed as and when they are received. Similarly, interviews will be conducted on priority for those who submit applications early and are shortlisted. The only part of the process that is not rolling is the decision stage, wherein all decisions for candidates in each round will be communicated together.
