Call For Applicantions - UNESCO Japan Young Researchers' Fellowship Program


The Commission on Higher Education invites all interested scholars to submit their applications to the UNESCO-Japan Young Researchers’ Fellowship Programme.

UNESCO designed the project “UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowships Programme” (UNESCO-Japan Young Researchers’ Fellowship Programme) in the framework of the Japanese Funds-in-Trust for the Capacity-Building of Human Resources which was established in November 2000 by the Government of Japan to enable UNESCO to give impetus to research in four areas under UNESCO’s Priority Programme Areas.

The programme focuses on post-graduate research activities in the following four areas:

    1. Environment, with particular emphasis on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR);
    2. Intercultural dialogue;
    3. Information and communication technologies; and
    4. Peaceful conflict resolution


Detailed information on the target group, eligibility criteria, conditions and procedures for application is available here.

Deadline of submission of nominations to UNESCO National Commission of the Philippines (UNACOM) is on 9 November 2018.
