Currently, in its sixth batch, Anubhav is the flagship lecture series of the Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago which from its fourth year is being conducted in collaboration with the Indian School of Public Policy and is committed to provide an opportunity to young professionals in the social impact and development sector to continue their process of learning and growth.  

For the past four years, the Anubhav Lecture Series was held in-person at the UChicago Centre in Delhi to a tremendous response from the community. However, since the last year, the Anubhav Lecture Series extended its space to a community of students and young professionals not just across India but across the South Asian region as the lecture series transcends the limitations of geography and transitions to the virtual domain. 

Anubhav is now accessible to participants from across the South Asian region i.e. Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Myanmar and Afghanistan by transitioning the series to the online medium where there is no limitation of geographies.

Designed for the professional development of young individuals working at the grassroots level in the South Asian region, Anubhav Lecture Series is a set of weekend-based virtual sessions delivered by industry leaders and experts over a period of 2 months. Participants will be on a full scholarship supported by the Harris School of Public Policy.


The Harris School of Public Policy in collaboration with Indian School of Public Policy will be inviting applications for the sixth cohort later in 2021. Young professionals who have at least 2 years of work experience will be eligible to apply for Anubhav Lecture Series 2021.
