Narratives from a Fellowship

American India Foundation

1/8

What are the common narratives emerging from a cohort of 30 Indian and American fellows working around the country? What kind of impact does the fellowship have on the host organisation, the fellow and the development sector? We have engaged with The William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service, American India Foundation for 3 years to answer some of these questions. In 2018 we started by an immersive process of reviewing the work of 27 AIF Clinton Fellows placed across 15 states and 26 organisations. This led to the co-creation of the common story, branding, and design family for the dissemination of their work and paved the way for the conceptualisation, design and development of publications, posters, display materials and event collaterals. This engagement continued in 2019, where we engaged with the work of the new cohort of 20 fellows to give shape to their stories and narratives.

The 2020-2021 cohort marks 20 years of the fellowships presence in India and is a landmark year as the AIF Clinton Fellowship now transitions to its new avatar as the Banyan Impact Fellowship. StratComm partnered with AIF to develop the story and communications not just of the year’s cohort but also of the 20-year journey in the country.
