Who we are

Training and fellowship schemes constitute for UNESCO a strategic means for attaining sustainable human development and for fostering of international understanding and a culture of peace. 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
