Young India Fellowship

YIF is Ashoka University’s fully residential one-year multidisciplinary postgraduate diploma programme. First of its kind in India, the Fellowship brings together the brightest students from diverse academic and social backgrounds, who are then guided by distinguished scholars and leaders of our times. They are taught to develop critical thinking and writing skills, understand leadership and group dynamics and get exposure to a wide range of subjects. This transformational experience turns them into problem-solvers and collaborators who are an asset to organisations and society.

Delivered in collaboration with:

6 Pillars of the YIF

Experimental Learning Modules

To complement coursework with real work experience, Fellows learn through the ELM, which is an 8-month long engagement with an organisation on live projects. Taken up by a team of 3-4 Fellows, each team works closely with the top management of an organisation.
