1. Do I need to submit letters of recommendation?
No, we do not require recommendation letters. Instead, we will ask you to provide us with two references from a professional or volunteer setting to complete an online form evaluating your skills, abilities, and preparedness for the Fellowship.
2. Can I apply for a fellowship and work at an organization of my choice that is not a partner of AIF?
No, you can only apply for projects offered by pre-vetted AIF partner organizations. This is done to ensure that the organization aligns with AIF’s values, mission and policies, can demonstrate the need of hosting a Fellow for an eligible project, and will be able to provide the level of support expected by AIF in hosting a Fellow.

All Fellows are expected to complete the full program, while upholding basic values and principles of trust, honesty, and integrity. Fellows are expected to embrace and engage with multiple challenges, and take a lot of initiative in the structuring and completion of their projects.
Fellows must abide by host organization work calendars and work complete workweeks in accordance with organizational policy and procedure, which in India commonly involves working on Saturdays.
4. Can I apply for the fellowship to do my own research?
The Fellowship is a full-time commitment. Due to time constraints and conflict of interest, Fellows are not allowed to conduct or work on their own research projects for the duration of their service.
