Fellowship

Each year Avanti selects a few students in Class XI for its fellowship program. We identify bright high-school students from low-income homes and provide them support during Class XI-XII and continuing all through their years in undergraduate college.

The key features of the fellowship program are:

1. Mentoring: The fellows are paired with a mentor (a current student at an reputed college). The mentor has a weekly conversation with the student, tracks his/her academic performance, provides academic and emotional support and helps prepare for the entrance exam.

2. Training: Avanti provides its students access to best-in-class preparatory material at free/subsidized rates and tutoring for engineering and medical entrance exams by partnering with the leading coaching institutes for preparation.

3. Career Guidance and general support: Avanti Fellows who gain admission to colleges continue to receive the full support of the program. They are provided with financial aid, English training and access to a dedicated training and placement cell.

Currently, over two hundred students (219) are enrolled as Avanti Fellows across all our cities of operation.
