The ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth has launched ICICI Fellows, which is a 15 month youth leadership programme. This programme is aimed to create a special group of socially responsible leaders for India who will also have a deep exposure to India’s broader realities.
The programme will focus on experiential learning. The fellowship programme is divided into three types of training periods, each ending with a good term of internship for the better understanding of the candidate and to make the programme more experiential.
The benefits of this programme are that the candidate will get a stipend of Rs.12,000/ month. Health insurance cover up to Rs 1 lakh on 24 hour hospitalization is also provided.
Graduates in the age group of 21 to 28 years are eligible and can apply for this programme.
The applications have started from 26 December 2011 and the last date is 29 February. The series of tests for admission to this programme will be conducted from March to May 2012. The results of those tests will be declared in 1 June 2012.
