Each IIC team will receive 5 weeks of training before beginning project work:
Training will focus on creative design, social entrepreneurship, leadership and management skills, and Indian history and culture. It will also include practical training specific to each project’s area of work.During the13-month fellowship, each team will receive project support from a network of project-specific mentors as well as from leaders within their partner institution.
