Future of India Fellowship


NSUI is proud to launch the "Future of India" fellowship: a 4-week public policy course for India's brightest young minds. The Fellowship will focus on developing an understanding of the political considerations and implications of different policy choices to build a new generation of liberal, democratic and compassionate young leaders across India.
