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.
How to register to the event and submit a fellowship request
