Unlike other countries in the world, India's leading under graduate programs focus on professional and specialized courses too early.
This, in effect limits the students to pursue careers in other fields, that is, if they desire to change or experiment. The Young India Fellowship program has been designed keeping in mind the urgent need for change in perspective and to encourage broad based education.
YIF program is a highly prestigious, inclusive program which will select its limited batch of fifty Fellows from all over the country.
This one year, fully funded scholarship program aims to expose the students to a pool of different disciplines and diverse sectors such as spanning media, consulting, non-profit, banking, IT etc. in order to help them choose an appropriate and well suited career path for themselves.
All of the fifty students will be under the guidance of mentors who are pioneers and leaders in their fields having created new organizations, led multi- national companies as well as reputed
academic institutions, and triggered new ways of thinking.
This scholarship program has been conceptualized and developed by a core team of successful like-minded philanthropists with strong academic and professional track records (including the creation of the ISB).
These members are also the founding directors of the International Foundation for Research and Education (IFRE) which is a non-profit organization created solely for the purpose of this
YIF also has a formal partnership with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) which would give an opportunity to the
Fellows to pursue further studies at SEAS.
Maybe it is just confusion or maybe a lack of direction. The Young India Fellowship program is a scholarship for Indian students which provides the students with multi-disciplinary learning opportunities. These opportunities haven been created by many inspiring teachers from India and the world.
This program will also provide an unparalleled world class learning experience delivered by the very best from across the world while gaining recognition by the whole nation.
