INK Fellows Program is looking for you!

July 12, 2012 | In: , ,

The INK Fellows program mobilizes young innovators and changemakers from emerging economies to bring their ideas and passion to the INK Community.

INK Fellows are budding luminaries in their respective fields, inspirational role models and the architects of tomorrow.

Fellows may be entrepreneurs, artists, social advocates, critical thinkers or, as we say, innovative changemakers from any field. Fellows are selected because they are young people who have already proven their potential to be the gamechangers of their industries. INK seeks out these young revolutionaries, brings them together in a supportive peer group, and provides exposure to accelerate the ability of the Fellows to impact society.

INK Fellows receive:

  • All expenses covered to attend the INK conference (including conference registration fee, airfare and hotel accommodations)
  • The opportunity to network with high-profile speakers and attendees
  • The opportunity to be selected for a speaking slot at the INK conference
  • Training on how to give an INKtalk
  • Fellows located in India: local speaking engagement at one INK event during the Fellowship year
  • The opportunity to have their INKtalk selected to be posted online at INKtalks.com
  • The support and camaraderie of the Fellows peer community
  • INK social media exposure throughout the Fellowship year
  • Customized assistance dependent upon the needs of their project

The INK Fellows Program selection criteria

We look for candidates who have:

  • A powerful vision for the world
  • Taken tangible steps to fulfill this vision
  • Demonstrated serious accomplishment at a young age
  • A compelling and inspiring story
  • A need of active support from the INK community
  • The capability to actively support and enrich the INK community
  • The ability to articulate and communicate succinctly

Requirements to apply

  • Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 40.
  • INK prefers Fellows to be from young economies, but great candidates from any location will be considered seriously and competitively.
  • Candidates must be present for the entire duration of INK2012 and arrive in Pune one day earlier. Fellows will be in Pune from October 10th – 14th.
  • Candidates should be changemakers specializing in any field, for example (but not limited to) art, dance, architecture, business, fashion, journalism, medicine, music, technology, science, sports, and social activism. Everyone, from every field, is invited to apply. Please see our list of INK2010 and INK2011 Fellows to get an idea of the diversity of INK Fellows.
  • A candidate’s actions MUST speak louder than their words. Humility is important, and self-promoters will not be accepted.
  • Candidates can be previous INK events or TEDx speakers.
  • Candidates cannot be previous TED Fellows, TED conference speakers, or INK conference speakers.

Application Details

We want to know more about you and what you do, and why you would make a great INK Fellow. You may answer Option A (written questionnaire) or Option B (YouTube video); the INK2012 application is copied below for your reference so that you can compose your answers before submitting your form here.

  1. What are you most passionate about?
  2. What are you doing to support that passion?
  3. What is the inspiration for what you do?
  4. What is a moment you are most proud of?
  5. Why is what you do unique?
  6. What is the biggest challenge you face? How do you plan to overcome this challenge?
  7. Share a statement, a statistic, a lyric, a mission statement, a compelling fact, or any other detail in 140 characters or less.
  8. What is your favorite INKtalk and why?
  9. Optional: You may upload one image, song (under 3 minutes), movie (under 3 minutes), or writing excerpt to support your application here. (No 3rd party newspaper or blog articles, please. All content should be original.)

So you want to apply to be an INK Fellow, but feel like none of the questions in this application relate at all to your life? You’re getting discouraged, because you feel you’ll never be able to express yourself properly if limited by the constraints of a written application? No problem. Create a 3-minute YouTube video about yourself. Include whatever you want and convince us why you should be an INK2012 Fellow. We will consider your application equally along with all the written candidates.
