YPG Fellowship

The Pre-professional Parliamentary Support Program (PPSP) now YPG Fellowship, is a first of its kind in Nepal. It is a unique and exciting opportunity for young Nepalese citizens of Karnali State to learn law-making and public policy. PPSP Fellows are mentored by a Member of Parliament (MP) of Karnali State and work with the assigned MPs for around 26 weeks (16 hours a week), for an active session in a parliament. The primary role of a PPSP Fellow is to deliver extensive research support to her/his MP for their parliamentary work. This involves drafting parliamentary questions for the MP, preparing speeches/documents for discussions, raising matters of public importance, drafting private members’ bills etc. Essentially, fellows are the knowledge assistants of State MPs at the parliament of  Karnali State.

When parliament is not in session, PPSP Fellows participate with policymakers, experts from think tanks, academicians, journalists, and leaders from distinct institutions by contributing to workshops on significant policy and development issues.  PPSP Fellows also participate in field visits during the inter-session period for a practical experience in governance at the grass root level.

PPSP Karnali is organized by Pokhara Research Center (PRC) with collaborating Hriti Foundation.
