OHCHR Indigenous Fellowship Program 2024

The OHCHR Indigenous Fellowship Program was established in 1997 by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the context of the First International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People. The aim of the program is to provide Indigenous Peoples with the opportunity to learn about the work of UN institutions and mechanisms that deal with human rights in general and Indigenous Peoples’ issues in particular. Participants who complete the internship will be able to better assist their organizations and communities in protecting and promoting their rights. The 4 weeks fellowship programmed for the summer of 2024 will be available in 5 languages: English, Spanish, French, Russian and Portuguese.   

Please note that applications for the 2024 OHCHR Indigenous Fellowship Program (for all 5 language components) will be accepted until Saturday 30 September 2023.
