Benefits

Fellows are entitled to the following:

  • A return ticket (economy class) from the country of residence to Geneva;
  • Basic health insurance for the duration of the Programme;
  • A stipend to cover modest accommodation and other living expenses for the duration of the Programme.

Eligibilities

  • The candidate must belong to a national, ethnic, linguistic or religious minority group (persons who do not belong to a minority group will not be taken into consideration, even if they have close links with minority communities and/or organizations).
    • NOTE: If your community identifies as indigenous, please do not apply to this program but to our Indigenous Fellowship Programme. Please note that the Indigenous Fellowship is a separate program and has different application forms and deadlines.
  • Formal education should not be a limitation to participation in the Minorities Fellowship Programme if relevant experience can be demonstrated.
  • Candidates should have the ability, willingness and possibility to train other persons belonging to minorities upon return to their respective communities/organizations and should agree to do so.
  • The candidates must have a good working knowledge of the language in which the program is imparted.
  • The candidate should be proposed and his/her candidacy supported by his/her organization and/or community. It is desirable that the sponsoring organization has a firm constituency or membership, is representative, undertakes work on minority issues and is composed of persons belonging to minorities.
  • The overall goal of the Minorities Fellowship Programme is to offer persons belonging to minorities the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in the field of international human rights in order to assist their organizations and communities in protecting and promoting human and minority rights. Therefore, it is important that the candidate proposed and nominated by a minority organization or community be someone who will return to his or her NGO to work in this field.
