The Piramal Fellowship is a unique opportunity for aspiring business and community leaders to engage where business and social impact intersect. Fellows are placed in leadership roles with for-profit businesses designed for social and environmental change. The program encourages participants to channel their business experience towards solutions with some of India’s most cutting-edge social entrepreneurs.
About the Fellowship
The Fellowship builds on-the-job managerial and entrepreneurial skills. Participants emerge with a strong understanding of what it takes to successfully design and build triple-bottom line business. The Piramal Foundation hopes to significantly contribute to a culture of values-driven leaders who understand the power of business to do social good. The Program is designed to prepare fellows for a future in social-impact business, through assistance in pursuing further education at top business schools, support for business planning, and expanding networks to enable impact leadership.
To be eligible for the fellowship program, prospective fellows must have at minimum a university degree and two years of work experience. You must also be eligible to work in India.
Each participant will receive a monthly stipend of Rs. 25,000 from their partner organization. This stipend should cover modest room and board expenses. Travel and work related expenses will also be covered by your partner organization through reimbursement. The Piramal Foundation will cover your costs of travel to and from orientation and workshops as well as room and board during these periods. However, you are responsible for paying your own way to and from Hyderabad, India at beginning and end of the Fellowship.
