Stipends & Housing
Fellows will receive a monthly living stipend (approx. INR 8500) towards cost of their living expenses. IDEX estimates that fellows living expenses, while in India, will average $250- $350 USD per month based on the city placement. *Please note the monthly stipends are intended to reduce a portion of the fellow's living expenses but are not intended to cover all estimated monthly living expenses.
IDEX/Host Enterprise provides shared housing accommodations for fellows (at no cost to the fellow) during the fellowship period. Fellows will be responsible for paying monthly utility costs.
Through generous funding from IDEX donors and partners, we are able to a limited number of partial scholarships for the 2017 Program to select candidates.
