About YIF

Young India Fellowship Logo

The Young India Fellowship (YIF) seeks to groom young women and men who will lead India through the 21st century. The YIF will bring together 225 emerging leaders from around India in a one- year residential post-graduate programme in our nation’s capital. We will launch you on your leadership journey by opening your mind to a rich and diverse set of subjects and perspectives, delivered by some of the finest educators of our generation from around the world. In this cross-flow of ideas and inspired learning, we will encourage and mentor you to discover your own self, to understand your personal values, strengths and aspirations, and create a process for you to build a broad life-plan that will align who you are with what you do in life. It really doesn't matter who you are: whether you graduated in the arts, science, engineering or commerce, we are committed to helping you get to where you want to go!

We invite you to be a Young India Fellow. Come, pick your own star!
