The INK fellowship is a one year commitment program. However, we like our Fellows to remain closely involved with the INK community and the Fellowship for years to come (in whatever capacity they are able). Once an INK Fellow, always an INK Fellow.
No, the INK Fellows program is not a paid program.
Selected INK Fellows will be notified by an email/telephonic call. All other applicants will also be notified via email if they have not been chosen as a Fellow.
Your inauguration to the INK community starts at the INK Conference (prior to which you will receive information packs and emails with various details you’ll need). You must be available to speak with the INK team for the INK Fellows introduction webinar, talk curation and feedback sessions.
We can accept only one application/nomination from an organization.
This Fellowship is yours, as much as it is ours. This is your Fellowship – be a proud member of the community and uphold its values by enriching it with your contributions. Please look at the Giving back to Fellowship section for more details.
Definitely – you’re eligible to apply again.
Applicants selected as INK Fellows are responsible for getting their own visas. We do not cover your visa application fees. However, we do provide a formal letter of invitation to facilitate the visa application process.
We will cover your flights (Economy class) to the INK Conference. Travel will be booked on lowest cost available at the time of booking. Once tickets are booked, any changes requested will be to the cost of the Fellow. All local transport and food will also be taken care for the duration of the conference. You will be provided accommodation on a shared basis with another INK Fellow.
Strictly on special permissions a candidate can defer the fellowship. Fellowship can be deferred to 1 year at the most.
INK Fellowships are awarded to 20 outstanding individuals every year. However this number may increase based onour Fellows exchange program with partner organizations.
All applicants must strictly adhere to the application deadlines.
Once an application is submitted a candidate will not be able to make any further changes to their responses. Applicants will be evaluated on the submitted application form only. Make sure to save an offline copy of your responses as our website does not allow you to save your application and come back to it later.
