Indicorps Fellowship Application Now Available!
A call to service.
“We need your service, right now, in this moment – our moment – in history. I’m not going to tell you what your role should be; that’s for you to discover. But I am going to ask you to play your part; ask you to stand up; ask you to put your foot firmly into the current of history.”
– President Barack Obama
For a year.
“One year is a long time? By some measures it is. But it is only 1.5 percent of your life. And if it is to serve as an inflection point for the remaining 98.5 percent, then I think it’s a chance you have to be willing to take.” – Rish Sanghvi (Indicorps Fellow 2002)
“Indian – it was easy for me to say; but, India was hard for me to understand. If I wanted to figure out who I was, maybe I should start with where I came from, and then decide where I want to go.” – Linda Mani (Indicorps Fellow 2008)
The Fellowship provides the opportunity for passionate, sincere individuals of Indian origin to become strong team players and leaders to build sustainable new initiatives.
In the past, projects have spanned from Kanpur to Pondicherry and Gujarat to Madhya Pradesh. This year we have projects slated for Rajasthan, Orissa and Maharashtra, among others. Fellows will become involved in real issues in many different fields, such as education, microfinance, social entrepreneurship, environmental conservation, public health, urban infrastructure, and much more. They will live simply and dig deep to learn about India and themselves.
Indicorps seeks dedicated people of Indian origin who are willing to challenge themselves and “be the change.” Please help us spread the word to find the most exceptional Indians to take on the challenge.
