Apply & Become a Changemaker

Why is the Bhumi Fellowship Important?

The state of education in India is dire, with millions of children deprived of quality education. Despite significant progress in enrollment, the quality of education remains a challenge. India's education system is plagued with low learning outcomes, lack of trained teachers, inadequate infrastructure, and poor governance. We believe that the best way to solve these challenges is by creating a pool of leaders like you who are committed to transforming education in India.

About Bhumi Fellowship

Bhumi Fellowship is a 2-year paid, transformative program to help you become the next leader in education. Through our fellowship program, we provide young leaders like you with hands-on training and on-the-job experience in teaching and transforming schools in India.
