ITU-D Study Groups 1 and 2

Fellowships

 
Eligibility
 
Within the available budget, fellowships may be granted to delegates from Least Developed Countries and developing countries [1] with a GDP per capita less than 2 000 USD, with priority to Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and to those who submit new contributions of direct relevance to the expected outputs of a given Question.
 
Air ticket and subsistence allowance
 
A full fellowship includes one return economy class ticket by the most direct/economical route from the country of origin to the location of the meeting as well as a daily allowance to cover accommodation, meals and incidental expenses. Due to budgetary constraints, the countries that are beneficiaries of a fellowship may have to contribute partly to the costs of the fellowship.
 
To request a fellowship
 
To request a fellowship, the participant must first register online (through the designated Focal Point, as explained in this webpage) and tick the appropriate box on the form. Upon acceptance of the registration, an electronic fellowship request form will be sent to the participant. The fellowship request form should be filled out, signed and approved by a duly authorized officer of the administration who should also sign it and stamp it with the official stamp of the administration. It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure that the form, duly completed, signed and approved, is returned to ITU before the deadlines given on the relevant meeting webpage.
 
Requests for fellowships arriving after the deadlines will not be considered.
 
Once completed, the form can be either scanned and e-mailed to bdtfellowships@itu.int OR faxed
to +41 22 730 5778.
 
Only requests that have fulfilled all conditions will be considered.
 
It is imperative that fellows be present from the first day to the end of the meeting and participate during the entire fellowship period.
