The American India Foundation’s William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India is committed to developing the next generation of leaders. Through AIF’s ten month fellowship in India, Clinton Fellows are equipped with a practical, field-based knowledge of development. These fellows will become life-long ambassadors for service to the marginalized and underserved in India.
The Fellowship pairs a select number of young professionals with credible NGOs and social enterprises in India in order to accelerate impact and create effective projects that are replicable, scalable, and sustainable. Together, AIF’s Clinton Fellows and development sector leaders form dynamic partnerships to exchange technical skills and knowledge, as well as their passion, commitment, and new ways of looking at the world, ultimately transforming both the individual and organization.
Since 2001, the program has placed 299 fellows in over 130 NGOs and social enterprises. Alumni are leaders in international development, academia, journalism, entrepreneurship, public health, and other fields. Together they represent a collective force for sustaining a long-term agenda dedicated toward change in India.
