CM, Madhya Pradesh Fellowship For MSW Graduates with Stipend Rs. 60,000

Madhya Pradesh has been undergoing rapid economic growth for more than a decade. This has brought about significant socio-economic changes in the lives of the people. It has also led to rising expectations, especially from the government.

Meeting these expectations requires investment in human capital so as to create an innovative, nurturing environment. The proven credentials of India’s youth in providing innovative solutions to problems, could contribute significantly in transforming government processes. The Chief Minister's Young Professionals for Development Programme is designed with an aim to excite young professionals to have an in depth engagement with government functioning and through that process, build effective design-solutions for prevailing problems.

This is a unique programme in the country which provides an institutional framework for undertaking research projects on governance and government programmes, ranging from an analysis of ground realities to accessing policy-framing challenges on issues of regulation and development. This programme is for a period of one year, extendable by another year. 51 Young Professionals (CM Research Associates) will be hired and placed in each of the districts of Madhya Pradesh to gather objective feedback on the functioning of the government.

They will be guided in their work by 6 dedicated Mentors(Advisors) who will be located at our institute in Bhopal and will work closely with the government departments at the policy making level. Details of the programme, the offered compensation and other benefits and the kind of work they would be expected to do may be seen in the attachment as well as on our website www.aiggpa.mp.gov.in. Applications for the programme have to be submitted online in the prescribed form available at our website. We are looking for outstanding youngsters who have creative, innovative and out of the box thinking. We expect them to have advanced analytical and problem solving skills; have an aptitude for working in teams and be able to engage with diverse stakeholders.

The Chief Minister's Young Professionals for Development Programme is an opportunity for young graduates/post graduates and professionals to work with the government. The Programme, like the fellowship programmes of other states, aims to equip aspiring Young Professionals with an in depth understanding of the complexity of the governance and development processes through district and village level immersion in a wide range of institutions dealing with regulation, health, education, infrastructure, urban and rural development and social security. These young professionals will help identify problems in the design of programmes, schemes and implementation processes through rigorously structured research projects, so that necessary improvements can be made at the policy and implementation levels.

51 Young Professionals (CM Research Associates) will be placed in each of the districts of Madhya Pradesh to gather objective feedback on the functioning of the government. They will be guided in their work by 6 dedicated Mentors(Advisors) who will be located at the institute in Bhopal and will work closely with the government departments at the policy making level. This young team will work with the institute on projects in areas of government activity having maximum impact on the citizens. Such projects would cover issues of governance which would include accountability, enforcement of the rule of law, improving the quality and effectiveness of public service delivery, control of corruption etc.

Specific projects may include improving the quality of education, improving child nutrition, improving the quality of health care, mitigation of poverty, creating livelihood opportunities, improving the service quality of government offices etc. While the appointees would be working at the field level, collecting evidence on definite, structured projects designed to examine specific policies and evaluate schemes and government programmes, they would also be required to innovatively look at the functioning of the government system and raise issues through working papers, which could be published by the institute. Such papers could lead to further research and policy work.
