Girl Icon Award



Milaan Girl Icon Fellowships 2016

Milaan Be the Change invites girls in Uttar Pradesh to apply for the Girl Icon Fellowship 2016. In 2015, Milaan recognized 25 extraordinary girls, chosen from over 3000 applicants, who demonstrated exceptional commitment to their academic success and who have shown courage and dedication to create social change in their communities.

What is the Girl Icon Fellowship Program ?

Girl Icons are youth leaders, between 12 to 18 years of age and residing in Uttar Pradesh, dedicated to advancing their own education and giving back to their own communities to create social change.

In 2015, 25 girls from across Uttar Pradesh were chosen to become part of this two year leadership journey.

In 2016 Milaan will select 25 Girl Icons to begin their journey as girl leaders and as agents of change. Selected applicants will be present at our Girl Icon Gala in Lucknow and have their stories of change told.
