In a significant academic accomplishment, Tanmai Shukla from the Class of 2019 has been awarded the Young India Fellowship instituted by Ashoka University.
The Young India Fellowship (YIF) is a one year multidisciplinary postgraduate diploma programme in Liberal Studies. The aim of the fellowship is to help Fellows become well-rounded individuals who will be able to think critically from multiple perspectives, communicate effectively and become leaders with a commitment to public service. YIF is delivered in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering and Applied Science SEAS, University of Michigan, King's College London, Carleton College, Sciences Po, University of California Berkeley, Trinity College Dublin, Yale University and Wellesley College. Students from all disciplines are welcome to YIF; engineers, designers, commerce graduates or literature enthusiasts are all mentored into reaching their full potential.
When asked about getting awarded the prestigious fellowship Tanmai said "I applied for Young India fellowship because of the unique curriculum it offers and its ability to bring together people from various walks of life since it doesn't have any course restriction for application. Being able to learn from people with very unique experiences is something I'm looking forward to during the course of this fellowship."
We congratulate him on this brilliant achievement and wish him the very best
