For young, liberal-minded Indians, the Nehru Fellowship in Politics and Elections provides a rare chance to understand politics and elections in India. Campaigns, research, political strategy, and communications are just a few of the areas that the Fellowship intends to expose participants to in a way that is both unprecedented and practical. The Fellows might also get the chance to work in an election war room or in a senior politician's office.

The Fellowship will give Fellows the opportunity to build multidisciplinary expertise on a range of topics and industries that have an impact on societal development and the economy.

Over the course of a year, fellows will work in a variety of departments inside a political consulting firm, such as campaigns, research, political strategy, and communications, to get practical experience.

An initial two-week training course will precede the Fellowship. Following training, fellows will work in three distinct capacities for six months (two months per function). Afterward, Fellows will spend the following six months specializing in one functional area of their choice. Fellows would have mastered the critical skills necessary to conceptualize, implement, and manage an election campaign at the end of the Fellowship, as well as a deeper understanding of how a political party handles elections.
