Young India Fellowship

Ashoka University Young India Fellowship


The essence of an Ashoka education, which is available as a postgraduate diploma in liberal studies, is unlike anything else. Fellows come from a wide range of educational, professional, socioeconomic, and geographic backgrounds. Within a year, they engage with a wide range of topics for study, research, and practise, thanks to the support of today’s best thinkers and researchers. This frequently aids them in reimagining themselves and identifying their hobbies. The YIF has developed approximately 1900 socially conscious leaders and change-makers for the twenty-first century since 2011.


Candidates under the age of 28 with recognised Undergraduate or Postgraduate degree in any discipline are eligible to apply. 
Candidates must have an above- average academic record, as well as involvement in extracurricular activities and outstanding written and verbal communication skills.


The deadline to apply for the 12th Cohort (2022-23) is March 15, 2022. Around 100 Fellows will make up the Class of 2022-23, who will be prepared to adjust to the new normal, which will necessitate a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to problem solving and leadership.
