Kautilya Fellows Program (KFP) 2020

Indian Foundation in association with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India is organizing 3rd Annual Foreign Policy Workshop at New Delhi from 26 January to 3 February 2020. The KFP is a unique and comprehensive 9-day workshop on India’s Foreign and Public Policy and is best suited for young academics, scholars and professionals keen to understand India's diplomatic agenda and key institutions of India's democracy.

The curriculum of KFP is well rounded to cover major thematic issues and strategic bilateral relationships in India’s foreign policy, understand India’s public institutions and their role in shaping India’s political economy and society. This event will bring together as participants, researchers, academicians and enthusiasts from across India, India’s neighbouring countries and from key partner nations. These sessions will be addressed by senior practitioners and thought leaders including officials of the government, national leaders, experienced diplomats, domain-specialists and ambassadors of several countries. In addition, the KFP will deploy innovative mechanisms to facilitate in-depth analysis and interaction through Field Visits, Foreign Policy Labs and Mini-Workshops on selected issues.

Costs and Scholarship

The tuition at programme is fully funded for all selected candidates. However, there is a fee of USD 350 which covers the cost of study material and meals for 10 days. The airfare to New Delhi and stay for the duration of the program will have to be borne by the candidates. We are currently in conversations with hotels and hostels near the venue to provide discounted accommodation for participants.
