Vision India Foundation(VIF) was founded by faculty and alumni of various IIT's in 2014 with an objective of bringing about systematic, long-term reforms in Indian polity that align with nation's aspirations and ethos. For this, the foundation selects young brightest minds across the nation and groom them into future leaders through their ambitious nation-building program Vision India Fellowship(VIF). VIF fellowship is a complete 3 years nation-building package. The fellowship is specifically designed keeping in mind the needs of future public leaders and thinkers required in the process of nation-building. VIF since its inception have mentored and trained more than 500 youth from across the nation and abroad.
VIF fellowships offer a unique opportunity to young graduates and post-graduates from all background to get hands-on experience on various live projects at very young age. The selected fellows are assigned projects at places such as MP's office, Municipal Corporation, Government Departments, a policy researcher, bureaucracy and similar avenues. Each fellow is provided with a mentor who will guide them during the program.
