SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY

The Public Policy Fellowship Program (PPFP) seeks to facilitate a better understanding of public policy by presenting to the participants a global, historical and contemporary context under which these policies are currently placed.

It is also an effort to keep the participant apprised and sensitized of key policies and how they, in turn, affect the common man and woman.

The highlight of the Program is its highly reputed Faculty who are leaders in their field. The program is open to anyone above 20 years and certificates will be issued on successful completion.

This Program is hosted by the Arya Samaj Charitable Foundation and conducted in association with the Tamil Nadu Young Thinkers Forum – an independent not-for-profit forum of young individuals committed to improving the social and economic ecosystem of Tamil Nadu and India.

Currently there are 2 courses being offered and new batches are announced on a periodic basis.
