The Stargazers Grassroots Education Fellowship is located at top universities of the world offered to candidates of Indian citizenship belonging to low-income groups and with a substantial record of driving change in their local community.

The Fellowship is designed to shape future leaders who contribute locally and think globally. It equips the student with the skills they need to benefit their local communities, at the same time ensuring their own long-term future as educated, employed, and financially independent members of society.

Female candidates are especially encouraged to apply, on the basis that they are the most likely agents of change for their local communities. Many development organisations now accept that when young women thrive, everyone around them thrives as well, and standards of living rise for the entire community.

Our first Fellowship is located at King’s College London and is offered for an 11 month Master’s Degree in a subject of the student’s choice. It will include a three month English language and technology orientation course prior to departure for London; an in-year mentorship programme in London; and two six month social service internship programmes, the first in the student’s community in India, and the second in a community in Africa after completion of the degree.

If you have a candidate to nominate or an educational opportunity to offer then please contact sophie@star-gazers.org.

Also we are raising funds for this Special Grassroots Leadership Education Fellowship and we need your help in changing a life and a community, one at a time. Simply click here to donate to us:
