Application invited for Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship for working professional

ORG-Azim Premji Foundation
Closing date-31 July 2019
About
Azim Premji Foundation is a not-for profit organisation that has been working since 2000 with the elementary education system in rural government schools.
The Foundation began by implementing various programs to improve educational quality across the country. By 2010 however it became clear that working on a “project” mode was inadequate and it takes continuous effort over many decades for any deep-rooted change to happen. This can only be achieved by establishing “institutions” which are embedded in the local context and can collaborate with local government structures. Thus the idea of setting up District Institutes in field locations came into being.
About the Fellowship
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

Compensation

The Fellows will receive a monthly salary of Rs.35,000/- Taxes and statutory deductions will apply.
