The INK Fellows 2017 applications are now open!
The INK Fellows Program aims to build a community of young game-changers who are on a journey to transform their imaginative ideas into global impact. We want to enable young people who have the courage to follow through on their vision by providing the peer-support necessary to take their brilliant work to the next level. Every year we open up applications for a new powerhouse of talent. We currently have 162 stellar Fellows, who are part of our community.

June 9th was our official launch date and to commemorate the occasion, we had a fun Fellows get together at The Teal Door Cafe in Bangalore. The evening started with an introduction to the Fellows program, and its journey over the past 7 years to where it has come today. Some of the INK Fellows in attendance, then stepped up to talk about their own stories of how being an INK Fellow has influenced them and their current activities.
Some of the past Fellows (and our strongest supporters!) who turned up to ‘wave the ship off’ were ArshiyaBose (conservationist), Shubhendu Sharma (Founder and Director, AFFORESTT), Sarvesh Shashi (Founder, Zorba), Shannon Olsson (scientist and researcher), Sandhya Goli (chess player), Ere Gowda (filmmaker)and Anupam Mukherji (The Fake IPL Player).
We hope to welcome a whole new bunch of enthusiastic and talented Fellows this year too! Don’t forget to apply/nominate and spread the word. We’re waiting!
