The UN Indigenous Fellowship Programme aims to empower indigenous representatives and their communities by strengthening their knowledge of the United Nations human rights system and how to protect their human rights. The trained Fellows are more aware of existing UN instruments and, hence, better equipped to assist their organizations and communities.
Indigenous Fellowship Programmes are held annually and deadlines for applications vary. Travel, living expenses, health insurance and training materials are covered by the Fellowship Programme. For more information, application or deadlines on the programme please visit directly; www.ohchr.org
