District Development Fellowship


DDF is a strategic collaboration between the Government of Punjab and Ashoka University to engage young professionals in supporting the Department of Governance Reforms and Public Grievances. The fellows will get an opportunity to work in one of the assigned districts for a year, while also receiving mentorship and professional development from the government officers and the program team at DDF.


DDF will provide an opportunity for 23 young professionals to work on large scale governance reforms, strengthen existing initiatives and make a real-time impact in Punjab and resolve some of the most pressing issues in the state, through process re-engineering.
