Fellowships for nationals from Least Developed Countries (LDCs)

The Multilateral Diplomacy Programme offers a few fellowships for nationals from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) according to the list specified by the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and the Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS: http://www.unohrlls.org/en/ldc/25/). There are few e-Learning fellowships available for each course and they will be awarded according to experience and career relevance in the international diplomacy sector, relevant academic background, and level of personal motivation. 

If you are not a national of a LDC, we will unfortunately be unable to consider your application for a fellowship.

Application for staff members from the United Nations and other international organizations

Please note that applications from staff members from the United Nations and other international organizations are usually not considered, it may be possible to take the course through funding by the staff training, but you would have to verify directly with the appropriate department within your organization. Some UN agencies, field operations and programmes cover the participation fees of groups for UNITAR courses.
