Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship 2020-21

 

The Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship is an opportunity for working professionals to immerse themselves in the public education system of the country for a period of one year. During this time the Fellows work at some of the most remote locations in India, exploring the nuances of public education by teaching in a government school in rural India.

 

The Fellowship journey, as experienced by many, is a rich amalgamation of learning about education, contributing on the ground as well as transforming careers. This experience helps develop an understanding of the ground realities of our public education system and provides a platform to contribute.

 

The Fellowship is open to working professionals from diverse fields who are committed to social change. If you are doing exceptional work in your field of choice and are now looking for meaningful ways to contribute to social change, do read our eligibility criteria and apply.

 

Fellowship Applications for the year 2020-21 are now open. Last date of application is 31st July, 2019
