Applications are open for the UN OHCHR Portuguese-speaking Indigenous Fellowship Program 2023. The Indigenous Fellowship Programme was launched in 1997 by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the context of the first International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People.

The aim of the programme is to give indigenous persons the opportunity to gain knowledge about the UN system and mechanisms dealing with human rights issues in general and indigenous issues in particular. Trained participants are better equipped to assist their organisations and communities in protecting and promoting their rights. This training programme is available in 4 languages: English, Spanish, French and Russian.

The Portuguese language component of the Indigenous Fellowship Programme (IFP), will start in March 2023. The call is open only to the indigenous peoples of Brazil, with the aim of later opening the same opportunity to other Portuguese-speaking countries. Applications from women and youth, as well as from indigenous and Quilombola communities are encouraged.

Cost of Portuguese-speaking Indigenous Fellowship

  • The selected candidates are entitled to a return flight ticket, living expenses and basic health insurance for the duration of the training.

Eligibility for Portuguese-speaking Indigenous Fellowship

  • Open only to the indigenous peoples of Brazil.
  • The candidate must be indigenous (non-indigenous persons will not be taken into consideration, even if they have close links with indigenous communities and/or organizations).
  • Age should not be a limitation to participation in the programme.
  • Formal education should not be a limitation to participation in the IFP given the socio-economic barriers confronted by many indigenous peoples that limit access to formal educational institutions.
  • Candidates should agree to train other indigenous persons after the return to their respective communities/organizations.
  • The candidate should be proposed and his/her candidacy supported by his/her indigenous organization and/or community. It is desirable that the sponsoring organization has a firm constituency or membership and that it is representative.
