About the Program

Carnegie India’s Young Ambassadors Program is a one-year program for young individuals to understand research-based policymaking. Based in New Delhi, Carnegie India is looking to recruit one young ambassador with an interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for its Technology and Society Program. The program for the selected candidate will run from February 2024 to January 2025.

The program gives an early opportunity to individuals who want to understand the complexities of the changing world order, learn crucial public policy skills, participate in the programming elements of a global think tank, and channel their interest in a particular area.


  • Applicant should be a recent graduate in any discipline with an interest in the field of technology policy, public policy, law, management etc.
  • Applicant is expected to commit full-time to the program in New Delhi.


CIYAP has been curated specifically for future leaders to:

  • Observe, engage, and understand research-driven policymaking from a team of Indian and global experts who work on key regional, national, and global issues through a multidisciplinary lens.
  • Learn from and contribute to a diverse community of young leaders within the cohort in New Delhi and the larger Carnegie network in Washington D.C., Brussels, Beirut, Berlin and Beijing.
  • Imbibe and nurture professional skills, such as leadership, analytical acumen, critical thinking, and report writing, amongst others.
  • Be part of cutting-edge economic policy projects at Carnegie India while building on and finetuning one’s own research interest in these areas.
  • Be mentored by and assist Carnegie India scholars working on a range of public policy issues and build networks both within Carnegie as well as leaders in the industry.
    • The candidate should be able to conduct research on a whole range of artificial intelligence topics – including but not limited to, its ethics, governance, emerging trends, and compute power issues. This would also require an analysis of existing AI policies, laws and regulations at the national, international and multilateral level, as well as monitoring upcoming developments related to AI policy.
    • The candidate may be assigned administrative, editorial, research, writing, or organisational tasks to provide overall support to Carnegie India’s Technology and Society program. The intern will also assist scholars on ongoing projects, background research, and events.
    • Responsibilities may include research assistance on issues relating to biotechnology, space policy, data governance, encryption, digital privacy, digital public infrastructure, and semiconductor supply chains.
