Committed to connecting the world




Within the available budget, one fellowship per country may be granted to delegates from least developed countries (LDCs) and developing countries [1] with a GDP per capita less than USD 2 000, with priority to LDCs.

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. Because of budgetary constraints, countries that are beneficiaries of a fellowship may have to contribute to the fellowship.

To request a fellowship

To request a fellowship, the participant must first register online (through the designated Focal Point) 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 no later than  Tuesday 14 March 2017.

Requests for fellowships arriving after the deadlines will not be considered.

Once completed, the form can be either scanned and e-mailed to 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.
