INK Fellows Program 2019 for Emerging Innovators (Fully-funded to the INK Conference)

Deadline: August 17, 2019

Applications are open for the INK Fellows Program 2019. The INK Fellows Program brings together a young, global and cross-disciplinary community of path-breakers who 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.

The mission of the program is to bring together a community of game changers who have the courage to redefine the world through their imaginative ideas and creative thinking. Being an INK Fellow provides the peer-support necessary to take brilliant work to the next level. The INK Fellows Program is an initiative of Ixoraa Knowledge Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Ixoraa Media Private Limited. Tata Trusts is a key partner of Ixoraa Knowledge Foundation in supporting the INK Fellows Program.
