UnBox Fellowships provide an opportunity for chosen fellows to travel and work across a diverse selection of projects hosted in different parts of India. Anchored and led by domain experts, selected projects for 2012 include understanding sustainable lifestyles in Auroville, collaborating with craft groups in Rajasthan, sourcing fashion inspirations in the local textile traditions of Kutch and several other projects, each of which are at various intersections of design, development, technology and entrepreneurship.
UnBox Fellowships are a chance for a multi-disciplinary group to collaborate, reflect and work on projects while immersed in real-life contexts. The projects are designed to inspire and inform participants about the power of interdisciplinary thought and action and give a window into the complex and challenging landscape of India. Fellows will be sharing their experiences both online and through workshops and exhibitions at the UnBox Festival, providing an avenue to continue the conversations within the larger community.
Fellowship durations range between 10 days to a month and are scheduled to happen between January 01, 2012 to February 01, 2012. Selected fellows will be entitled to:
- • Fee waiver for UnBox 2012
- • Domestic travel and accommodation support for the period of the UnBox Festival (Feb 2-5, 2012)
- • Support for most project related expenses including travel to fellowship site, accommodation during the fellowship and production costs
There are no restrictions as to who may apply as long as you are able to demonstrate your passion and interest for interdisciplinary work. The DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS DECEMBER 20TH, 2011 and RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON DECEMBER 25TH, 2011. Some fellowships are slated to start as soon as January 01, 2012 and so applicants are requested to bear that in mind while applying for those projects. Also due to limited resources, all international applicants must make their own arrangements to reach India.
Please go through the description for each fellowship below - it is important you read through them carefully and understand the outline for each.

We are looking forward to hosting our 2012 fellows and growing the community UnBox patrons
