RABTT FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 2015 – LAUNCHED

The second cycle of the Rabtt Fellowship Program has just been launched.The one year program allows Fellows to serve as educators and administrators, where they can actively become involved with public and low cost private school students through teaching and taking up other operational responsibilities during the Rabtt Summer Camps and Rabtt Workshops.

Rabtt Fellowship Trainings allow Fellows to explore themselves as persons of great talent, intellect, and potential. The idea is to bring individuals of great capabilities on one platform where they learn and unlearn through communal experience.

Each Rabtt Fellow will conduct 1 Summer Camp, 3 Workshops and attend 3 Training Sessions. This entails 40 days during Summer and 5 weekends during the rest of the academic year.
