I read about this yesterday and I am givingkey points about it and how it will benefit students:
The fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to facilitate skill development in local economies.
The two-year blended programme includes classroom sessions at host IIMs as well as Fellow mentorship while in district.
It provides an opportunity to work with district-level schemes and institutions to build institutions, boost skill development, link markets, and spur growth.
MSDE will fully finance candidates selected from the 2021-2023 admissions cycle.
During the first year of the programme, the candidate would be paid a stipend of Rs. 50,000 per month. During Year 2 of the programme, the candidate will earn a stipend of Rs. 60,000 per month after satisfying the requirements of Year 1. Quite impressive right?
