UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Fellowships

Closing date: 14 January 2005

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) is calling on young researchers with advanced degrees (M.A., M.Sc. or equivalent) in developing countries to apply to the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship Programme for fellowships ranging from USD $6,000 to USD $10,000. The amount varies according to duration and place of study. The duration of the research studies could be between 3 months (minimum) to 9 months (maximum).

Through this programme, UNESCO grants a total of 20 fellowships a year to researchers in four areas: environment, intercultural dialogue, information and communication technologies, and peaceful conflict resolution.

A maximum of two researchers, no older than 40, will be chosen by each National Commission. A selection committee made up of experts in the four study areas will then examine the applications and make preliminary recommendations to the Director-General.

Only applications from invited countries are eligible to apply (see below for more information). No applications will be considered from individuals. All applications must be sent to the National Commission for UNESCO of the country of origin of the candidate (see below for more information). The National Commission will decide whether they will submit the application to UNESCO. It should be noted that all candidatures must be endorsed by the National Commission for UNESCO.

To obtain The UNESCO Fellowship Application Form, applicants may contact the National Commission for UNESCO in their country. (The Medical Examination Report is NOT NEEDED when applying.)
