Swachhta Saarthi Fellowship Cohort 2022
‘Swachhta Saarthi Fellowship’ launched by the Waste to Wealth Mission spearheaded by the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor (PSA), Government of India is an initiative to empower and recognise the efforts of young innovators who are engaged in community work of waste management as Swachhta Saarthis. In the 2021 Cohort, 344 fellows (high school students, college students, and community workers) from across 27 states and 6 Union Territories (UTs) are currently impacting waste management efforts towards building a sustainable future.
The applications for the 2022 cohort are now open for submission till April. Up to 500 fellows will be recognised under the fellowship. The aim through the 2022 cohort is to empower further and recognise the efforts of more young innovators engaged in community work of waste management and form a vast network of waste warriors on the ground as Swachhta Saarthis. The selected Swachhta Saarthi Fellows (SSFs) under all three categories (A, B & C) are being supported with a monthly fellowship of INR 500, INR 1,000, and INR 2,000, respectively, for one year. This fellowship will empower interested students and citizens to reduce waste in cities and rural areas continuously.
