The Urban Fellows Programme (UFP) | 2022-23

March 8 - April 11

No alternative text description for this image

India’s urban transition is unprecedented in scale and complexity. Within it lie both the opportunities of economic development and greater employment as well as the challenges of persistent inequality, extreme deprivation and environmental degradation. The UFP offers the chance to be a part of shaping this transition.


The UFP is scholarship-based, nine-month, full-time, residential, interdisciplinary and based at the IIHS City Campus in Bengaluru. It seeks to combine classroom teaching, site-based applied learning, work in live projects, and external internships to introduce Fellows to diverse forms of urban practice. The Programme is open to recent graduates and young professionals from varied educational backgrounds or practice domains. The sixth batch of the UFP will graduate in May 2022.


An ideal candidate will have a Bachelor’s Degree in any subject or discipline and their age should not exceed 30 years at the time of the UFP’s commencement. Therefore, candidates should be born on or after 1 August 1992. The Programme may, subject to facts and circumstances, consider non-degree training and certification programmes completed after 10+2 schooling. Candidates without any formal education after their 10+2 may also apply, especially if they have valuable experience of formal or informal work in urban sectors.
