The Urban Fellows Programme (UFP) 2018-19

India's urban transition is unprecedented in scale and complexity. Within it lie both the opportunities of increased economic growth and employment as well as the challenges of persistent inequality, extreme deprivation and environmental degradation. Be a part of shaping this transition.

The UFP is a tuition-free, nine-month, full-time, inter-disciplinary fellowship based at the IIHS City Campus in Bengaluru. It seeks to combine classroom-based teaching, site-based applied learning, work in live projects, and external internships to introduce the Fellows to diverse forms of urban practice. It is open to recent graduates and young professionals from varied educational backgrounds or practice domains. The first batch of 30 Fellows graduated in May 2017. The second batch of 32 Fellows will graduate in May 2018.

Eligibility:

Ideal applicants will have a Bachelors Degree in any subject or discipline and their age should not exceed 30 years at the time of the UFP's commencement. Therefore applicants should be born on or after 1 August 1988. The Fellowship will consider non-degree training and certification programmes completed after 10+2 schooling. Applicants without any formal education after their 10+2 may also apply, especially if they have experience of formal or informal work in urban sectors.

All candidates must have basic proficiency in reading English. There is support available for candidates with limited speaking ability in English and they are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must be Indian citizens. OCI Card holders are not eligible to apply at this time. In addition, citizens of Nepal with valid identity documents (Nepalese passport or Nepalese Citizen Certificate or Nepalese Voter's Identification Card) are also eligible to apply.

We strongly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, and those from economically and socially excluded communities.

IIHS aims to create a diverse, inclusive, open, safe and enabling learning environment. It is committed to the principle of not discriminating against individuals on the basis of personal beliefs or characteristics such as caste, class, religion, region, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability. UFP at IIHS is part of this commitment to create supportive teaching and learning environments. Fellows are also expected to aspire to highest standards of ethics in their personal and professional interactions.
