Anant National University Offers India’s First Fellowship for the Built Environment.
ANU, a pioneer in its focus on providing education for the Built Environment, invites application for the second cohort of Anant Fellowship, a one-year, post-graduate academic program – the first-of-its-kind in the world.
The Anant Fellowship aims to nurture and empower solutionaries (revolutionaries with tangible, constructive, innovative solutions) who prioritise the pressing issues of equity and sustainability while designing, developing, planning, and preserving the Built Environment of the country. With the belief that Built Environment is a tool for social change, the Anant Fellowship exposes its Fellows to interdisciplinary perspectives so that they go on to design solutions that are socially, environmentally, ethically, and economically appropriate.
Conceptualized in a unique manner, the Anant Fellowship combines academic rigour and intensity with first-hand, experiential discovery to create a balance between theory and praxis, between instruction and experimentation, and between paced-learning and open-ended discovery. Four thematic tracks run through the Fellowship – a) Domain and Technical Learning, b) Society and Cultural Immersion, c) Self-Development and Leadership, and d) a year-long Live Action Project aimed to make a positive change at the grassroots level.
Qualifications The Fellowship is open to students from all backgrounds. Preference will be given to students from the disciplines of architecture, design, planning, environmental sciences, civil and construction engineering, archaeology, heritage and conservation, and relevant social science disciplines of anthropology, sociology, history, geography, geology and other allied fields.
Applicants must have a sound academic record and should have successfully completed an undergraduate or postgraduate degree before the start of the Fellowship.
Applicants must be able to show a demonstrated commitment to improving the Built Environment and an understanding of the issues pertaining to the area.
Anant Fellowship is committed to diversity; we invite applications from students and professionals of all age- groups, socio-economic backgrounds, and geographies both in India and internationally.
