The INK Fellows Program 2016

The INK Fellows Program 2016

Deadline: April 8, 2016

Application for the Ink Fellowship Program is currently open. The INK Fellows Program is a young, global and cross-disciplinary community of path-breakers who we believe will be the shapers of tomorrow. Every year, INK identifies the minds that are redefining their field of work, and the world around them. The Program aims to provide them the  support necessary to leverage their impact.

Eligibility

  • Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 40
  • INK prefers Fellows to be based in young economies, but great candidates from any location will be considered seriously and competitively
  • Candidates must be present for the entire duration of the INK2016 Conference, and arrive in Goa two days earlier. Fellows will be in Goa from September 14th–19th, 2016
  • Candidates should be changemakers specializing in any field, for example (but not limited to) technology, entrepreneurship, health/medicine, architecture and design, science, art/culture/literature, energy and environment, research and academics, education, sports, film/music, and social impact. Please see our list of previous Fellows here to get an idea of the diversity of the program
  • A candidate’s actions must speak louder than their words. Humility is important, and self-promoters will not be accepted

All Fellows must have:

  • Demonstrated the capacity to think differently, to listen with an open mind, and to keep learning
