Policy in Action

The Policy in Action Program is a project-based four week engagement for university students and young professionals who are keen to explore the fields of public policy and development. The program is designed to deliver core skills in policy analysis, advocacy and public leadership, along with the experience of working on live projects for Members of Parliament. With a mix of weekend sessions and remote collaboration, the program schedule is easy to accommodate alongside regular university and work commitments.
Launched in 2016, the Policy in Action Program now runs in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The program is highly selective and receives a large number of outstanding applications from a diverse pool of candidates in each city. We had received more than 400 applications for a cohort of 55 students in the very first edition of the program.
Applications to the 2018 editions of the Bengaluru and Hyderabad Policy in Action Program have now closed. Additional programs are currently being planned. Please see the tentative calendar for more information. You can also sign up below or follow our facebook page for updates.
