The YIP 2021 Challenge will be open to all students, from every institution, across Kerala. Applicants can apply to be part of the YIP 2021 Challenge in one of the following two ways:
1.1. Institution-based Applications
With notifications and direct communications, K-DISC will invite institutions from all over Kerala to apply to be part of the YIP 2021 Challenge. There will be a minimum requirement these institutions will have to meet before they can register for the Challenge.
With the consent of their Heads, interested Institutions will have to register for the YIP 2021 Challenge with at least 2 Teachers or Faculty Members who would be the “FACILITATORS” of the Institution for YIP, if the institution is shortlisted. The institutions could also recommend mentors for the YIP Programme. Further, these institutes will identify and support groups of students to participate in the Challenge.
1.2. Individual Applications
In cases where the individual is interested in being a part of the YIP 2021 Challenge, but is part of an institution which is not part of the Institutions screened and shortlisted for the Challenge, they may be allowed to register if they are able to to obtain the consent of their Head/Principal and the Institute meets the eligibility criteria for the program.
