Стипендии УВКПЧ ООН - Программа обучения

Applications are open for the United Nations OHCHR Indigenous Fellowship – Training Programme 2020. 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.

The objective of this training programme is to enhance the knowledge of indigenous peoples on existing international human rights instruments and mechanisms, so they can use them to more effectively advocate for the rights of their communities and raise their concerns at the international level. At the end of the Programme, trained fellows are also in a better position to share and give training sessions on the knowledge gained to their indigenous communities and organizations.


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.

Participants of the Fellowship Programme are entitled to the following:

·        A return ticket (economy class) from their country of residence to Geneva;

·        A daily or monthly stipend to cover their basic needs in Geneva, including modest accommodation, food and transport;

·        A basic health insurance for the duration of the Programme.

OHCHR will not cover any additional expenses such as visa fees and travel insurance.


·        The candidate must be indigenous (non-indigenous persons will not be taken into consideration, even if they have close links with indigenous communities and/or organizations);

·        Age should not be a limitation to participation in the programme;

·        Formal education should not be a limitation to participation in the IFP given the socio-economic barriers confronted by many indigenous peoples that limit access to formal educational institutions;

·        Candidates should agree to train other indigenous persons after the return to their respective communities/organizations;

·        The candidate should be proposed and his/her candidacy supported by his/her indigenous organization and/or community. It is desirable that the sponsoring organization has a firm constituency or membership and that it is representative;

·        The candidate should have a good working knowledge of the language, in which the programme is imparted.
