Teach For India's Fellowship is a powerful two-year grassroots immersion program. Having worked with students, and forged first-hand critical relationships with principals, parents, and public institutions, Fellows emerge as informed, invigorated, and empathetic future leaders in the social sector. 

TFI Fellows then graduate and become a part of our Alumni. 77% of the Alumni stay in the education and social sectors, creating a movement of leaders and leveraging the multiplier effect to collectively build a vibrant continuum towards educational equity.

the Fellows’ impact on our students is real, and measurable.

A longitudinal study conducted with Columbia University showed that Teach For India Students grew approximately 5 times as much in English, and 2.5 times as much in Mathematics, when compared with students in non-Teach For India classrooms.
