The UFP is a scholarship-based ten month, full-time, inter-disciplinary and residential fellowship that will be delivered through 8 months of in-class teaching at the IIHS City Campus in Bengaluru, followed by 2 months of internship placements in locations where your particular internship organisation is located.
Tuition fee for the UFP 2020-21 costs is Rs 1.75 lacs (inclusive of GST) for the entire programme, payable in three installments over the year. There is a 10% discount for those making a single payment at the beginning of the programme. This fee includes all costs of travel for the UFP on exposure visits as well as expenditure on local and inter-city travel for UFP practica and applied projects.
The UFP is committed to providing scholarships to all candidates that receive admission, who are unable to pay the programme tuition, after a review of their financial needs. The programme is thus need- blind. Your selection and admission into the programme will not be affected by your ability to pay.
In addition to scholarships that cover tuition fees, there are a limited number of stipends available to cover daily living expenses for candidates with significant financial need. Applicants wishing to be considered for this will have a chance to indicate so in the admission forms.
