Tamil Nadu India –The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Fellowship Programme (TNCMFP) was announced with a view to harness the talents of the Young Professionals from diverse professional and academic backgrounds in the implementation of the various flagship and priority schemes of the State Government.

The government believes in the power of the youth to improve the efficiency of the governance processes and hence, is launching the Tamil Nadu Education Fellowship (TNEF) to support the novel initiatives undertaken by the School Education Department.
Having achieved nearly universal enrollment in primary schools, the next frontier for the state is to elevate the quality of education imparted in its public schools, and the Government of Tamil Nadu is committed to innovating and delivering contextual educational programmes for children across the state.
Under the able leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu many innovative schemes to improve the quality of education in government and government-aided schools are being implemented like Illam Thedi Kalvi, Ennum Ezhuthum, Naan Mudhalvan and Nam Palli Nam Perumai. The goal of these initiatives is to ensure that all students, in government and government-aided schools of Tamil Nadu, attain all the necessary skills for them to thrive, right from attaining basic literacy and arithmetic skills to choosing and pursuing a higher education of their choice.
The selected TNEF Fellows will support the administrators at the State level like Directors and Joint Directors of the various departments under the School Education Department to implement the schemes effectively. They will also work under and support the administrators at the District level like Chief Education Officers and District Education Officers in reviewing and improving the quality of implementation of the programmes.
