Frequently Asked Questions
What is Campus Drift & what is “The CD Fellowship”?
Campus Drift is a student led college media organisation which acts a common platform for all college students around India and the world to read about stuff related to their college life. The CD Fellowship is a 6-month internship cum skill building program for college students who would love to join us. It’s a first-of-it’s-kind plan which is more than your regular internship.
Is this a paid internship and do I have to come to office?
Since it is a non-profit student platform, we don’t pay fixed stipend to CD fellows. However, we distribute regular perks and gifts from the revenue we generate. It’s a work from home internship, so you won’t have to come to office daily. We just need one hour of your time daily. We may ask you to attend some of our meetups to get to know the team better.
What will I get/earn in this fellowship program?
Most importantly, this program has been developed to help you build skills in the domain you like. We have our in-house modules for you to work on and we’ll also connect you to mentors & companies constantly for more learning sessions. At the end of it, you would have industry ready basic knowledge in your domain and we’ll try to land you a paid internship/full time job as well.
Will I have creative and working freedom on the things I’ll work on?
Definitely. We just provide direction to you while you use your creativity & skills to work on the projects that we provide you. Apart from the projects we provide, you also have the freedom to advise us on new projects to start and ultimately lead them.
How are you different from other college related pages?
That’s a very general question often people ask us and we have a one-word answer to it – Community. We are working hard towards building an amazing community of college students to learn from each other and collaborate on different things. Our content and other verticals are specially created keeping an average college student in mind and our way of working and building things is really different. This fellowship is one of the examples of how we do things differently.

What is your criteria of choosing students for the fellowship?
There’s only one requirement – you have to a college student and should have at least one semester left in your course.
