An ideal candidate will have a Bachelor’s Degree in any subject or discipline and their age should not exceed 30 years at the time of the UFP’s commencement. Therefore, candidates should be born on or after 1 August 1991. The Fellowship may, subject to facts and circumstances, consider non-degree training and certification programmes completed after 10+2 schooling. Candidates without any formal education after their 10+2 may also apply, especially if they have valuable experience of formal or informal work in urban sectors.
All candidates must have basic proficiency in reading English. There is support available for candidates with limited speaking ability in English and they are encouraged to apply.
Candidates must be Indian citizens. OCI Card holders are not eligible to apply at this time.
We strongly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, and those from economically and socially excluded communities.
