Godrej India Culture Lab Leadership Programme

Each year, we visit some of the most prestigious humanities colleges across disciplines, ranging from architecture to design to media studies and introduce the students to the Lab and the programme and ask them to apply for the internship with an idea for change. The applicants then go through a rigorous selection process after which we select 5-7 Fellows who form our Leadership Programme batch for the year.

Applications to the 2020 Programme are now closed.


It's a full-time internship programme that will be held between May-June 2020.


At the Godrej India Culture Lab in Vikhroli, Mumbai.

About the Programme

This intensive internship for humanities students gives our selected Culture Lab Fellows a deep-dive into the city’s cultural industry and introduces them to the various aspects of culture. Our programme is structured around three pillars:

Classroom experience

Selected Fellows get masterclasses from industry experts, learn from the Lab team and each other, and also discuss their experiences and readings from an intensive curriculum.


Selected Fellows benefit from exclusive guided walkthroughs to some of the city's most prestigious cultural spaces and have private interactions with the heads of these cultural spaces.


Together, the selected Fellows conceptualise and execute a world class event with the help of the Lab team. This will serve as their capstone project through the internship.


To apply for the programme you must be a student enrolled in a Bachelors/Masters degree programme in the humanities. For example, B.A., M.A., B.Arch., BDes, BMM, BFA.

How to apply

Here are the three simple steps you need to follow to be part of our programme.


Your application should be the answer to this question below:

‘WHAT IS YOUR IDEA FOR ORGANIZING ONE CULTURAL EVENT IN MUMBAI? Tell us the idea, why it is needed and how you think the event will be.’

There is no preferred medium for your entries – the more creative the better. You can make films or documentaries, you can write, you can make models, or devise a social media campaign. Our aim is to get a sense of you, your idea and your creativity.

A small note about what culture means to us:

We believe in culture with a small ‘c’, in the everydayness of it, of culture that is lived, and that there is no standard definition of culture. Culture is what you make of it. Put your best foot forward and send in your amazing ideas. Best of luck!
