Fellowships for ITU-R events

Fellowship eligibility

Recognizing the difficulties faced by least-developed and 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.  The decision criteria to grant a fellowship include: available budget, equitable distribution among countries and regions, and gender balance.

Fellowships are not available​ for the Radiocommunication Assembly (RA), the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC), the Radiocommunication Advisory Group (RAG) or for ITU-R study group events.

How to register to the event and submit a fellowship request

    1. Register to the event through your Designated Focal Point (DFP) for ITU-R event registrationThe DFP of a delegate wishing to request a fellowship should tick the "Fellowship Request" box included on the online event registration form. Online registration to the event, through the corresponding DFP, is a prerequisite to submit a fellowship request.
    2. Upon processing of the registration request by the ITU, a pre-filled fellowship request form will be emailed directly to the delegate applying for a fellowship.  The delegate's email address provided during the online registration process will be used for that purpose.
