The International Centre for Human Development (IC4HD) announces human development fellowships for young professionals for 2014. The fellowships offered by the Centre support innovative analytical work on major human development issues. The theme of this year’s fellowships is social security in the Global South. IC4HD is a joint initiative of the Government of India and UNDP.
About the Fellowships

The selected fellows will receive INR 50,000 per month, and will be hosted by the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies in Shimla, India, for three months.
