The Young India Fellowship is now in its fifth year and has rapidly become one of the most sought-after programmes in India. The one-year multidisciplinary courses that the Fellows study at YIF, complemented by the Experiential Learning Module (ELM) allow them to think critically from various perspectives and the skills to apply this understanding in the workplace. We help them become problem-solvers with the ability to identify challenges, grasp the bigger picture and effectively communicate clear and concise solutions.
YIF alumni are making their mark in some of the top organisations across the public, private and social sectors. They can be found at leading multinationals such as BCG, The Gates Foundation, McKinsey, Microsoft, STAR TV, TIME Magazine, and the World Bank. In India, acclaimed organisations like Avendus Capital, Cipla, Genpact, Goonj and Teach for India count Ashoka alumni among their ranks.
Those interested in furthering their education have gone on to premier global research universities like Cambridge, Harvard, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford and Yale, and been awarded prestigious scholarships, such as the Chevening, Commonwealth, Fulbright and Rhodes Scholarships.
Fellows graduating from YIF are offered a range of roles such as Business Development Manager, Designer, Strategy Analyst, Research Associate, and Executive Assistant to CxOs, Consultants and Teachers.
