The Chief Minister Good Governance Fellowship program is an insightful program strongly supported by the Honorable Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.

The program aims at resourcing highly qualified and dynamic young professionals for a period of two years to support the Government of Chhattisgarh in implementation of its flagship citizen centric welfare programs. This program offers a unique opportunity to the selected fellows to work closely with the Government and deliver impact on the ground by leveraging data and technology. They will work as experts and consultants in the departments of Government of Chhattisgarh, especially in those departments that implement key government projects such as Social Development, Electronics and Information Technology, and Works among others. The Department of Information Technology and CHiPS will provide implementation support to the working group. CHiPS will be the nodal agency for implementing the program under the guidance of the Steering Committee.

This program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Executive Office and prepare them for future public service opportunities.

The fellows will contribute meaningfully in governance and execution of high impact projects. The fellows would work in tandem with the government departments and support the design of innovative and self-sustainable solutions leading to enhanced socio-economic empowerment of the community. Fellows shall be given opportunities for gaining professional experience and structured learning in rural development and poverty reduction with emphasis on developing analytical and problem solving capabilities.

The Government of Chhattisgarh would stand to gain from new and innovative ideas from the fellows which could be leveraged for policy design and decision making.
