The fellowship program offers a blend of theory and practical learning experience that will empower you to deal with various challenges you may confront in your journey towards self-development and professional excellence.

The program is specifically designed for young citizens of India who look forward to becoming torchbearers of skill development at the grassroots in the country.

The learning experience will enhance your skills and expertise in specialised areas of your interest.

Apart from them, guest faculties from other reputed institutions, bureaucrats and subject matter experts would be delivering their lectures during workshops. Further, IIMV offers its fellows access to excellent infrastructure, knowledge resources, including state-of-the-art classrooms, meeting rooms, to mention a few.
