How to become a donor?

Invitation to donors

We invite interested Member States, foundations, institutions and private donors to offer fellowships (contributions-in-kind), or, to finance fellowships (cash contributions) under the UNESCO Co-Sponsored Fellowships Programme in priority fields of UNESCO's competence.

The terms of reference for each programme under the Co-Sponsored Fellowships Scheme are negotiated, and agreed upon, with each donor. UNESCO cooperates with the donor country or institution in administering the fellowship programme jointly; the Organization announces the programme to the targeted member States, solicits and collects applications and prepares a short list of candidatures, which is then submitted to the donor to make the final selection. The Fellowships Section then grants the fellowships to the selected beneficiaries.
