Azim Premji Foundation has announced its annual Fellowship Programme. Applications for this programme are invited from people having 3 to 10 years of work experience, with a postgraduate or a professional degree in any discipline and the desire to contribute to quality and equity in education. Proficiency in the local language is a must and candidates should be open to relocate to the districts where Azim Premji Foundation operates. The monthly stipend offered would be Rs.28, 800 (all inclusive).

Last date for submitting the application is November 30, 2016 (email: fellowship@azimpremjifoundation.org)

The selection is based on an online assessment followed by personal interviews. The Programme aims to give a grounded experience of the educational and social space to a broad range of people across sectors. It is a 2 year full-time programme where the first year will involve teaching in government schools and participating in the activities of the Field Institutes of the Foundation. The second year would be focused on capacity building of the Fellows, preparing them for roles they can play in the Field Institutes after completing the Fellowship.

After an induction of 2 weeks in Bengaluru, Fellows will be posted in the blocks of the districts of Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Puducherry, Rajasthan, Telangana and Uttarakhand, where the Foundation currently works through its Field Institutes.

Sudheesh Venkatesh, Chief People Officer of Azim Premji Foundation said, “We know there are several people working in organisations with have a heart and mind for social change. This is an opportunity for them to get to know first-hand about the working environment, challenges and the satisfaction one can get while working to improve the quality and equity in school education in India. It also gives us an opportunity to identify committed and talented people – those who perform well during their Fellowship and are keen to continue, will be welcome to join the Foundation as full-time members.’
