Call for applications – Indigenous Fellowship Programme

OHCHR Indigenous Fellowship – 2019 Training Programme

The Indigenous Fellowship Programme was launched in 1997 by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (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 2019 English language component of the Indigenous Fellowship Programme is: 30 August 2018.​
