Director-General invites Young Researchers to Apply for UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi FellowshipsUNESCO has invited young post-graduate researchers in developing countries with a Master’s degree (or equivalent) to apply for fellowships, each worth a maximum of US$6,000 to US$10,000, through the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship Programme, financed by Japan through funds-in-trust dedicated to the development of human resources.
The programme – named after the late Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi who was known for his commitment to development issues – offers a total of 20 fellowships to researchers active in one of four fields: the environment, inter-cultural dialogue, information and communication technology, and peaceful conflict resolution. This is the sixth year running that Japan has awarded these grants.
