The National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP), India’s leading cross-disability advocacy organisation has announced a three-year fellowship programme for the differently-abled youth interested in disability rights and inclusion and seeking a career in the development sector.
The fellowship was launched on June 11 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the late Javed Abidi, one of the pioneers of the disability rights movement in India.
The fellowship is in collaboration with Azim Premji Foundation and marks the silver jubilee of the NCPEDP.
People with disabilities in the age group of 18-28 years are eligible to work on an identified theme or issue during the three-year period as a part of the fellowship.
The fellowship begins from September 2021 and entails a monthly stipend of up to ₹25,000.
The fellowship intends to engineer social entrepreneurship amongst fellows and guide them in contributing to an evidence-based collection of advocacy efforts, experience and effects to the cause of disability in a pluralistic manner.
The last date to apply for the fellowship is August 11, 2021. Details are available on the website: http://www.ncpedp.org
