The Nehru Fellowship in Politics and Elections is a unique opportunity for young, liberal-minded Indians to understand politics and elections in India. The Fellowship aims to provide unparalleled hands-on exposure to the different functions of a political consulting firm, including campaigns, research, political strategy and communications. Additionally, the Fellows may also get the opportunity to work in an election war room, or in the office of a senior politician.
During the course of the Fellowship, Fellows will be able to gain interdisciplinary knowledge on a variety of sectors and issues that impact economic development and society at large.
The Fellowship will be a 12-month, full-time program based in Hyderabad. The Fellows will be expected to travel to other locations, when needed.
WHO CAN APPLY?
The overarching aim of the Fellowship is to provide a platform for young Indians to participate in the design and execution of election campaigns.
Applicants should meet the following criteria:
- Must hold a Bachelor’s Degree in any discipline.
- Must be an Indian citizen.
The Fellows will be selected through a two-stage evaluation process.
In the first stage, applicants will be shortlisted based on the information provided in their application. Educational record, work experience and statement of purpose will be considered.
In the second stage, the shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview (video/in-person).
Final selections will be made based on the interview performance.
In the first batch (Jan-Dec 2023), 20 candidates will be offered the Fellowship. This number is likely to increase to 40 in the subsequent round of the Fellowship.
WHAT TO EXPECT
