About the Fellowship
Government of Telangana Fellowship program hosted by Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) is a 1-year long (extendable after 1 year) program for young graduates/professionals to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the State. It’s a great opportunity to work alongside the Telangana Government.
The Innovation Cell Fellowship Program has been conceptualised with a vision to bring in young and energetic professionals with lots of ideas to work on nurturing innovation and entrepreneurship in the State. The fast-paced nature of work necessitates the requirement of people who can bring in fresh ideas, take complete ownership, and work independently to ensure that they are delivered.
During the course of the fellowship, the fellows will develop stakeholder and project management skills and gain first-hand experience working on large-scale issues with the Government. The first 4 weeks of the program will be spent learning about the existing projects of the State Innovation Cell and identifying opportunities, conceptualizing new projects to be undertaken to accomplish the objectives of the State Innovation Cell. The next 11 months will be spent on detailing out and executing the projects.
