UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) CONFINTEA Scholarships

In September 2015 UIL will offer four CONFINTEA research scholarships for a period of one month each to researchers from UNESCO Member States (particularly from the global South). The scholarships are mainly based on private donations from the British educationalist Peter Jarvis and his publisher Taylor & Francis and the Nomura Centre for Lifelong Integrated Education in Japan.


The CONFINTEA research scholarship programme was launched in 2012 and since then a total of eleven scholars have taken part in the programme. Participants are selected on the basis of their potential to produce articles, research papers, programme tools or policies which can be shared with decision-makers and will have an impact in the education sector of their home countries.

Interested candidates are asked to submit their application by 30 April 2015 to the CONFINTEA scholarship coordinator: Ms Lisa Krolak at l.krolak@unesco.org or  consult the CONFINTEA scholarship website.
