Links to Artist Networks and UNESCO Fellowships
The UNESCO Fellowship Programme aims to contribute to the enhancement national capacity-building in areas that are closely aligned to UNESCO’s expected strategic objectives and programme priorities. The National Commissions are the official channel for the submission of fellowship applications: The UNESCO Secretariat cannot entertain requests from individuals.
The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme is the only exception to this rule.
Due to high costs, the fellowships are limited in number. It is financially not possible to meet the demand for all the requests. During each biennium Member States may submit two candidates.
For more information, please contact the National Commission in the country of your citizenship.
