The Chief Minister's Fellowship Program has been charted out to harness youth energy, promote social service and elevate the future development of our country. The Government of Gujarat is a proven leader in economic growth, development of agriculture, innovation in scheme design and use of advanced technology in governance. This high performance will be extended to the Fellowship Program to inspire the best young achievers to advance as managers of excellence. This program is a chance for the youth to experience Government functioning first hand and immerse themselves in working for a better society.
The Fellowship Program will be directed at addressing areas of highest priority for the State Government, especially improving the Human Development Index of the State. Creative and innovative thinking from the youth is required to address issues like: raising the quality of education, improving child nutrition, reducing maternal mortality and strengthening progress in rural areas through mitigation of poverty and creating livelihood opportunities. This is a unique opportunity to make a difference to the lives of the people and transform society.
We aim to empower managers with this understanding to address the increasing complexity of the world's economy, society and environment; managers who can make effective decisions based in any sector. The Fellowship Program will lay the foundations that bring youth who have distinguished themselves in their field of work to come together and create visionaries with statesmanship like qualities to create a better future.
To harness youth energy, promote social service and elevate the future development of our county. A chance to experience Government functioning first-hand and to make an impact on people’s lives.
