Fellowships for ITU-R events

Fellowship eligibility

Recognizing the difficulties faced by low-income countries, and within the available budget, fellowships may be granted for certain ITU-R events. When available, one fellowship is offered per eligible Member State, i.e. Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and low-income countries with a GDP per capita of less than 2,000 USD (with priority to LDCs).

For some regional ITU-R events, fellowships may only be offered to delegates representing Member States of a specific region.

It should be noted that fellowships are not offered for ITU-R study group events.
