William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India

The William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India is shaping the next generation of leaders committed to impactful change while also strengthening Indian civil society to be more efficient and effective. The Fellowship builds bridges between the US and India by placing talented young Americans and Indians in service with leading non-governmental organizations and social enterprises in India. The Fellowship is designed to build the capacity of grassroots and emerging organizations in India while developing a new generation of young leaders and social entrepreneurs with a deep understanding of and commitment to India.

The Fellowship was founded to help fulfill AIF’s mission of catalyzing social and economic development in India, and promoting a meaningful cultural and intellectual exchange between the United States and India.

Since a pilot class of 21 Fellows sent to assist in the post-earthquake rehabilitation of Gujarat in 2001, the Clinton Fellowship has placed more than 365 Fellows in service with 166 NGOs and social enterprises across India. Alumni of the Fellowship have risen to prominent roles in the international arena from diplomacy and human rights to program management and research and evaluation.

Modeled after AIF’s Clinton Fellowship for Service, the Youth Ambassador Program is an immersive service-learning and cultural exchange program for American and Indian high school students to come together and experience firsthand the development challenges facing underserved communities in India.

AYAP is cultivating global citizens by fostering an awareness of social development in India among its participants through visits with local communities, Indian peers and schools, leading NGOs, and the private sector. Students engage with an AIF service-learning curriculum on a pressing development theme, engage with issues of poverty and other challenges facing vulnerable communities, and learn how to prototype and design solutions.
