AEAI- South Asia Fellowship Programme  

Aide et Action International - South Asia has instituted a fellowship programme, “AEAI-SA Fellowship” for people across South Asia. This Fellowship provides an opportunity to experience, learn, innovate, share and practice different ideas and concepts in the field of education.

Aide et Action International has been working in 26 countries across the globe with a vision of a world where dignity is ensured for all men, women and children through education – lever for development. To further the cause of “Education for All” and foster a broad movement for education, Aide et Action International works in close collaboration with civil society groups, governments, NGO partners and individuals engaged in development work. AEAI-SA Fellowship is an effort to strengthen the solidarity base of stakeholders and to encourage mutual learning and sharing.



AEAI-SA Fellowship aims to promote innovation, public action and advocacy in the area of education and to enhance the solidarity base of stakeholders.



The fellowship is offered under the following broad themes:

Innovation and Learning
This fellowship is open for all experienced people and knowledge leaders who can strengthen the concepts and understanding in the area of education in general and elementary education in particular. This is to encourage broader sharing of innovative experiences in the area of education.
Community Action
This fellowship has been constituted to identify and promote the ideas and actions of leaders emerging from the communities. It aims at initiating actions at the grassroot level with local ideas being the focal point of activity.
Public Action based on Micro Experiences
This fellowship has been designed to promote young graduates from different disciplines as volunteers in the area of education and give them an opportunity to connect with the communities. The volunteers will have lived-in experiences with communities that would give an insight in to the educational status of the people. The purpose is to sensitize the young people on greater solidarity with the cause and enable them to influence the education sector from where ever they are.


Duration of the fellowship would normally be one year and amount of support would vary depending on the quality and significance of the concept note judged by a panel of experts.
