Call for Applications for IISE 2011 Program
Do you have a dream of starting and leading your own social project?
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others?
If your answer is “yes,” then The International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE) in Kerala, India, is the study program for you. Taught by international experts in the field of management and social entrepreneurship, IISE empowers visionaries who are blind or partially sighted to set up projects across the world that address the needs of the underprivileged.
IISE is a unique institution with a distinctive philosophy, which cannot be compared to a university or other conventional academic entities. The institute is a “think and action tank,” where talented visionaries come from all over the world to exchange knowledge and experience, to work together as a team in the realization of their visions and dreams.
Every IISE participant is an active, contributing, independent, self-confident and skilled adult visionary, possessing expertise in different fields. You, as a potential participant, are therefore not coming to IISE as a student, but as an expert. Expectation of your participation and commitment to the program is therefore very high. To this end, before proceeding to the application process, ask yourself the following questions:
– Am I willing to spend 11 months of my life in a developing country working intensively in the pursuit of my social entrepreneurship/leadership skills?
– Am I willing to participate in all activities giving every moment the best of my knowledge, experience, creativity and energy?
– Am I willing to help others achieve their goals and develop their skills in areas I consider myself an expert?
– Am I willing to come to the Institute with a spirit of exchange, contribution and teamwork?
– Am I 100% committed to making my goals, dreams, vision and social project come true, continuing even after I complete the program?
If you answered “YES” to all the above questions, then you are the right candidate. Join IISE and impact your future and that of others.
Deadline for applications from outside India and Nepal is May 30, 2010.
