OHCHR Indigenous Fellowships Programme 2013 – CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has announced call for applications for its Indigenous Fellowships Programme for 2013.

The Indigenous Fellowship Programme was launched in 1997 by the  OHCHR in the context of the first International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People. The aim of the programme is to give indigenous persons the opportunity to gain knowledge on the UN system and mechanisms dealing with human rights issues in general and indigenous issues in particular. Trained participants are better equipped to assist their organisations and communities in protecting and promoting their rights. This training programme is available in 4 languages: English, Spanish, French and Russian.

Please note that the deadline to receive applications for the 2013 English speaking Indigenous Fellowship Programme  is: Tuesday 1 May 2012.

OHCHR strongly encourages applicants to send applications (by post or fax) well before the deadline. Please also note that given the high number of applications that they usually receive, they are not anymore in a position to print scanned applications. Therefore, scanned applications sent via email will not be taken into consideration.
