The United Nations - The Nippon Foundation of Japan Fellowship Programme

The Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea (DOALOS) of the Office of Legal Affairs is now accepting applications for the session of the United Nations - The Nippon Foundation of Japan Fellowship Programme.

We are pleased to note that during the last five years, 55 awards have been made to nationals of 48 States.

The major objective of this Fellowship Programme is to provide funded opportunities for advanced training in the field of ocean affairs and the law of the sea, or related disciplines, to government officials and other mid-level professionals from developing coastal States so that they may obtain the necessary skills to assist their countries in the formulation of comprehensive ocean policies and to implement the legal regime set out in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and related instruments

The Fellowship Programme consists of two phases, namely a six-month research and study phase, immediately followed by a three-month training phase.

The first phase will be implemented through a university or research institution affiliated with the Programme and which has in-depth competence and expertise in the given field of studies.

After completing the first phase, fellows will undertake a training phase with the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea in New York, or with an intergovernmental agency or organization competent in the chosen field.

Deadline for submissions: 15th August.
