The Teach For India Fellowship program, is an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising youth, from the nation’s best universities and workplaces, to serve as full-time teachers to children from low-income communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools.
Teach For India Fellows are placed in 1st to 10th standard classrooms where they teach all major subjects — including English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science with the exception of regional languages. Although the mother tongue is helpful in interacting within the communities, it is not a necessary prerequisite, as the Fellows teach in English medium classrooms.
Teach For India Fellows will be paid a salary of Rs. 20,412 per month. If required to relocate from their home city, Fellows will be given a housing allowance ranging from Rs. 5,300 to Rs. 10,000, depending on the city in which they will stay. In addition, Fellows will receive an allowance for school supplies.
