Carnegie India is accepting applications for its one-year Young Ambassador’s Program under its Technology and Society program, which is situated in New Delhi. The selected candidate’s program will run from April 2023 to March 2024. Carnegie India is seeking one young ambassador.
Young people have critical roles in long-term development, peace initiatives, and democratic government. Recognizing that increasing mutual trust and international cooperation must begin with them, the program provides an early opportunity to individuals who want to understand the complexities of a changing world order, learn critical public policy skills, participate in the programming elements of a global think tank, and channel their interest in a specific area.
