The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is pleased to launch the Call for Applications for the 2016 edition of its Fellowship Program. The Call is open to participants between 25 to 38 years old, from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and North America, with a strong interest in intercultural exchanges and professionally involved in the field of Education – one of UNAOC main pillars of action, along with Youth, Media and Migration.
The Call will lead to the selection of 12 young leaders and professionals from Europe, North-America (EUNA) on one end, and 12 young leaders and professionals from the Middle East and North-Africa (MENA) on the other end. During two weeks, participants from each geographic area will travel to their counterparts’ region.
The goal of the Fellowship is to provide participants with first hand exposure to cultural diversity while interacting with a wide range of local actors and partners. In every country they visit, participants will acquire crucial comprehension tools to help them understand the plurality of their host country’s culture, politics, society, religion, and media.
