India | INK 2014 conference - open call for INK Fellows


INK2014 Conference 'Beyond Boundaries' takes place October 17-19 in Kochi, Kerala, India. Young, visionary change-makers from around the world are invited to apply for the INK Fellows Program 2014. The INK Conference is an annual celebration of thinkers and doers from diverse walks of life.

The INK Fellows Program is a young, global and cross-disciplinary community of path-breakers who we believe will be the shapers of tomorrow. Every year, INK identifies the minds that are redefining their field of work, and the world around them. The Program aims to provide them the  support necessary to leverage their impact.

Applications for the INK Fellows Program 2014 are now open! Applications close on March 30th, 2014 at 11:59 IST

  • Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 40

  • INK prefers Fellows to be based in young economies, but great candidates from any location will be considered seriously and competitively

  • Candidates must be present for the entire duration of the INK2014 Conference, and arrive in Kochi two days earlier. Fellows will be in Kochi from October 15th-19th, 2014

  • 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. Please see our list of previous fellows here 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

INK is a platform for a global dialogue to take place with an emphasis on idea exchange between India and the world. Our cornerstone event is the annual INK conference in association with TED, which brings together the world's movers and shakers to share ideas in India. INK gives away all of the knowledge it collects at the INK conference to the population at large—for free—through its website, INKtalks.com.

  • A scholarship to attend the INK Conference during the Fellowship year
