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 runs in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Hyderabad is now being added to this list! The program is highly selective and receives a large number of outstanding applications from a diverse pool of candidates in each city. We had more than 400 applications for a cohort of 55 students in the very first edition of the program.
The Hyderabad program is currently accepting applications; please see details below to apply. Applications to the Bengaluru program have already closed. The program kicked off on the 13th of January, 2018.
