Urban Fellows Programme (UFP) 2017-18

The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is pleased to announce the launch of the Urban Fellows Programme (UFP) 2017-18. The UFP is a fully funded, nine month, inter-disciplinary fellowship programme.

India’s emerging urban transition needs urban practitioners with adequate knowledge, reflective thinking, appropriate skills, new perspectives and the right values. IIHS aims to equip, nurture and prepare a new generation of graduates and young professionals to address India’s complex urban challenges through the Urban Fellows Programme. It seeks to combine classroom based teaching, site based applied learning, work in live projects, and external internships to introduce learners to diverse forms of urban practice.

This is the second iteration of the programme. The UFP 2017-18 will run from August 2017 to May 2018 for a batch of 35 Fellows. The fellowship covers tuition costs and provides support for accommodation. Applicants with significant financial need may also apply for an additional living stipend, which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Recent graduates and young professionals from varied educational backgrounds or practice domains who were born on or after 1 August 1987 are eligible to apply.

Applications to the UFP 2017-18 are now open and will close on 1 May 2017.
