Why should I join the Bhumi Fellowship? The ineffectiveness of the Indian education system puts our future generations at risk. Only a new and more effective learning method can equip our children with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive tomorrow. The Bhumi Fellowships offers you a chance to reimagine the way we learn and create a working system that prepares children for a better tomorrow.
Who are we looking for? Spirited young graduates (between 21 and 26 years old) who are willing to commit to a two-year full-time fellowship and can read and, speak Tamil fluently.
Where will my fellowship be? In and around Chennai
What does the Bhumi Fellowship entail? Fellows with strong commitment to the education sector are offered a platform through the fellowship to immerse in the education ecosystem through the Whole School Transformation programme. The journey will also help them build their entrepreneurial acumen by designing solutions to problems in classrooms, schools, or the immediate community that will address education inequity and quality within schools.
Will I be trained during the fellowship? Further to supporting the delivery of the whole school transformation programme in schools through a structured module, the fellows will be trained in personal leadership, pedagogy, systemic change and entrepreneurial skills. An exposure to other potential educators/education entrepreneurs in the ecosystem will also be offered.
What is the duration of the Fellowship? Two years. You will commit to working full-time.
What opportunities will be available to me after the Fellowship? The fellows will be put on an entrepreneurial journey to replicate the model in a location of their choice. Alternatively, they can pursue a career in education with Bhumi or any other like-minded organisation.
