UNV/UNFPA Young Innovators Fellowship Programme 2019

UNV/UNFPA Young Innovators Fellowship Programme 2019

Deadline: February 10, 2019

Applications are open for the UNV/UNFPA Young Innovators Fellowship Programme 2019. This programme will provide young people with the opportunity to engage in a structured programme to drive innovation, creativity and to deliver concrete results in UNFPA.

Enabling young people to realize their full social, economic and human potential is a key aspect of this UNV-UNFPA partnership. The fellowship programme provides an opportunity to bring 14 young people into UNFPA with a dedicated focus on both providing a youth perspective and driving innovation.

Selected fellows would join UNFPA headquarters in New York for two months, where they would undergo a dedicated leadership training. Two of the Young Innovators will remain as international UN Volunteers for a further six months at UNFPA headquarters in New York; these two HQ positions are open to applicants of all nationalities. The other 12 Young Innovators will return to their home countries, where they will complete six-month national UN Volunteer assignments in UNFPA Country Offices (and must be nationals of these countries).

Eligibility

  • Open to innovative young people from around the world who have demonstrated commitment to development issues within their communities as UN Volunteer Young Innovators.

Application
