PROGRAMME OF UNESCO GRANTS FOR BASQUE VOLUNTEERS

 

This programme began in 1998 as a part of the Basque Governments decision to give “Help to International Organisms to give grants to Basque Volunteers.” A series of grants are conceded each year through which selected individuals are incorporated into UNESCO centres in the countries of the South, carrying out programmes in Education, Social and Human Sciences, Natural Sciences, Culture and Communication and Information.

The duration of the grant is 12 months, with the possibility of prolonging it for 12 further months.

Up until now nearly 189 young people have been able to enjoy this programme from the seven calls for applicants that have been made. During this time the destinations have covered nearly the whole range of UNESCO Field Offices, and volunteers have been involved in supporting and implementing projects and programmes in all the areas that UNESCO covers.

 

requirements for obtaining the GRANTS

  • Be enrolled on the census of the Basque Autonomous Community before the 1st of January of the year of the call for applicants.
