    • Build valuable relationships with thought leaders in the development sector.

    1. Hi!! Nice to c your work here on this blog plus your awesome ‘in-nutshell’ profile on Engineers for Social impact…Gr8 wrk..seriously
      Anyways myself Gaurav from NIT warangal…an avid blogger and budding entrepreneur with GaufireSpeaks.com coming up as ma new venture.Hey i am finding my self bigtime interested for this E4si.org opportunity..perhaps i was looking for this kind of Chance only…So may i have some tips from you on how to go about applying for it.
      Will be eagerly waiting for reply.Cya

    2. Gaurav,

      Great to hear of your interest.

      I’d encourage you to apply. Instructions are available at http://www.e4si.org/apply. You would need to submit a copy of your CV and answers to 2 questions.

      The internships will be diverse in nature, from marketing to technology assignments. It would be a good idea to read the immersion briefs (to be uploaded soon) well before starting off on your answers.

      Since you are an avid blogger, I’d urge you to blog about E4SI – and share information about this opportunity.

      In NIT-W, E4SI will be partnering with your entrepreneurship club.

      Good luck.

    3. its quite ashamed that this event is only confind to d students of iits and nits only
      i am from a prestigious govt eng college but unable to participate in this event ;
      kindly pay attention towards it and make it open for all so that the true talent may come in d picture ………..

    4. Amit,

      Thanks for your comment.

      The decision to restrict applications to 10 partner schools is equally strategic, as much as it is driven by logistics for a young volunteer initiative. This will be reviewed in the next edition.

      E4SI is a highly selective program — with 5 Fellows being selected — and we believe that the pool of 15,000+ students at 10 premier universities can present the true talent you refer to.

    5. Hey Nitin, are you the founder of engineers for social impact? its great .. I am from NITK ECE

    6. Hi all!
      The entire concept of E4SI is very interesting and exciting.
      But its disappointing to see Delhi College of Engineering not being a part of the program in spite of being one of the premier engineering schools of the country.
      I’m sure that including DCE would no doubt add to the pool of talent that is being looked for.Kindly look into the matter as there are many here like me who will be more than interested in this wonderful opportunity.
