Dear Members,

Warm greetings from WAY Headquarters!

Please find below the call for application for the 2017 edition of the UNAOC Fellowship Program.


Dear ,

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) has launched the Call for Applications for the 2017 edition of its Fellowship Programme. The Call is open to young civil society leaders between 25 to 35 years old, from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and North America, with a strong interest in intercultural exchanges. The theme of the Fellowship 2017 being “The role of civil society and the media in combatting hatred and fostering inclusion”, candidates must also be able to present professional achievements in these fields.


The Call will lead to the selection of two groups of twelve participants from Europe, North-America (EUNA) on one end, and from the Middle East and North-Africa (MENA) on the other end. 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.

Candidates have until Sunday May 21st 2017 11:59pm EST to apply.
