The 2022 Fellowship Program is intended to provide an outstanding platform for bridging cultures, boundaries, and ideologies, so contributing to the achievement of Agenda 2030.
Candidates must be able to exhibit professional achievements connected to the issue in order to be considered. The Call will result in the selection of a group of eight young leaders from Europe, North America (EUNA) and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) who will travel together for two weeks to selected nations in these areas.

Aim of this fellowship

The Fellowship’s purpose is to challenge assumptions and demolish prejudices by exposing participants to cultural diversity firsthand.
