Fellowship is a full-time program for three years.
It has three components:
1. Work (WR): Activities directly related to the project. This will take up ~67% (two-third) of the time
2. Training (TR): Workshops and training programs organized by VIF. This takes ~16.5% (one-sixth) of the time
3. Personal Profile (PR): Preparing for a career post the fellowship. This takes ~16.5% (one-sixth) of the time
The time distribution has been prepared considering a 56-hour week (including all components). Each component will be mentored.
