UNESCO fellowships contribute towards the genuine sharing of knowledge and expertise in which each party, whether teacher or student, gives and learns.
The UNESCO Fellowships Programme, through the award and administration of fellowships, study and travel grants, aims to:
- Contribute to the enhancement of human resources and national capacity-building in areas that are closely aligned to UNESCO's expected strategic objectives and programme priorities; and,
- Increase fellowships co-sponsorship arrangements with interested donors and extrabudgetary funding sources through the Co-Sponsored Fellowships Programme
Only applications submitted and endorsed by the National Commission of the candidate's country will be examined. The UNESCO Secretariat cannot entertain requests from individuals.
