The Teach For India Fellowship program is a 2 year full-time paid commitment in which we place the most promising graduates and professionals as full-time teachers in under-resourced and low-income schools.

The Fellowship program is rigorous, challenging and provides Fellows an opportunity to develop themselves as leaders and simultaneously transform the lives of the children under their care. Prior to and during the two-year Fellowship, Teach For India provides Fellows with the technical skills and leadership training required to achieve the goals they have set for themselves and their students.

This training includes a 5 week, residential training Institute before they start teaching followed by on-going training and support throughout the two years delivered through conferences, training sessions, leadership forums, online resources and on the ground mentoring by a Program Manager. In the 2nd year of the program, each Fellow undertakes an assignment called the 'Be The Change' project wherein they ideate, plan and execute a project that benefits their classroom, the school or the society as a whole.

There are four application rounds for the 2016 Fellowship. Application Deadlines: August 25th, October 27th, December 8th, February 2nd.

Teach For India is a collusion of forces attempting to solve the underlying cause of all social problems, "lack of education". No child's fate must be decided by their circumstances, it is this thought that inspires me to perform to the best of my abilities and to strive to achieve more not for me, but for my children.

The Teach For India Fellowship experience is so powerful that it changes you as a person, in ways you often don’t recognize. You mould yourself as a person, to become a better role model for your children, simply, because you feel your kids deserve a better person to look up to.

Teach for India represents hope. Idealistic, unconditional, life-changing hope. Over the duration of my Fellowship, I want to make sure my students understand and imbibe this concept; it's what gets me out of bed in the morning.
