Teach For India Fellowship program - Applications Open Now

The education crisis is a complex puzzle with layers of issues from attendance to teaching quality. Underlying all of these complex layers of failing education systems in the country lies a severe lack of leadership.

The Teach For India Fellowship program, is an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising youth, from the nation’s best universities and workplaces, to serve as full-time teachers to children from low-income communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools. Through this experience of teaching in classrooms and working with key education stakeholders like students, principals, and parents, our Fellows get exposed to the grassroot realities of India’s education system and begin to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to attain positions of leadership in education and identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.

It takes a movement of citizens to solve the crisis. You could be a part of the solution. Join the movement for educational equity for all children and for a better, brighter India.

Applications for the 2020-22 Fellowship Program are now open!

 Teach For India Fellowship is a highly selective and coveted program, with a selectivity rate between 6% and 8.5%. Through the 3-staged process detailed below, we select the highest potential candidates into the program.

Teach for India believe that the Fellows are going to be leaders of the movement towards educational equity. Aside from passion and commitment to the vision of educational equity, Teach for India look for leadership potential that can develop through the two year Fellowship. Teach for India Fellows are critical thinkers and problem solvers. They have grit, courage and set high expectations for themselves and for others. They demonstrate interpersonal skills through their interactions with various stakeholders. Teach for India look for diversity in our Fellowship cohort, and our Fellows come from across the country, with varied levels of professional experience - college students, working youth, experienced professionals, and entrepreneurs. Our 2015-2016 cohort have come from 266 colleges and 428 different companies.

Applications for the 2020-2022 Fellowship are now open. Click on the 'Apply' button to register for the 2020-2022 Fellowship. If you have any questions about the Fellowship or the application process please email apply@teachforindia.org and our recruitment team will be in touch with you.
The application form is an opportunity for us to get to know you. It can be as detailed as you want it to be. Through your application we will understand why you want to join Teach For India and why you would be a strong fit for the Fellowship program.
Once you submit your application, the next step is a 1-hour online test (AMCAT) which focuses on your situational judgement and English language ability. This must be completed within 4 days or 96 hours from the time you submit your application form. Your application will not be considered complete until you complete the test.

After we have reviewed your application form and AMCAT test results, we may have some additional questions for you. If so, you will be invited to attend a 30-minute phone interview with one of our team members. Here we will ask follow-up questions to gain further information that will be helpful in our evaluation.

If successful in your application, you will be invited to the final stage of our selection process -- an in-person Assessment Centre. Here, you will teach a 5-minute lesson, take part in a group discussion and complete a short problem solving activity. You will also have an hour-long personal interview with one of our staff members. If you are based abroad and cannot attend one of our in-person Assessment Centres, we will conduct your interview and relevant activities over Skype. You will receive more details for this stage closer to the time.

each For India Fellows will be paid a salary of Rs. 19,000 per month. If required to relocate from their home city, Fellows will be given a housing allowance ranging from Rs.5500 to 10,000, depending on the city in which they will stay.
