Aim and Benefits of Ban Ki-moon Global Citizen Scholarship Program

  1. Attendance at International Fora: Scholars are sponsored to attend high-level, international fora such as European Forum Alpbach and the Africa-France Summit on Sustainable Cities and Regions. Select scholars have the opportunity to attend high-level meetings with politicians and other stakeholders where they can share their unique insights. This assists scholars in building their professional networks.
  2. Tailor-made Short-term Academic Trainings: Scholars are supported to take part in specialized, tailor-made academic trainings focused on different themes. These trainings allow scholars to gain useful knowledge and skills and to benefit from peer-to-peer exchange.
  3. Development of an SDG Micro-Project: When applying, scholars submit a proposal for an “SDG Micro-Project” to be carried-out with the support of the Ban Ki-moon Centre. These projects address one or more of the SDGs and seek to contribute to meeting challenges in the scholars’ communities and/or regions. Scholars present their projects to an expert panel and submit a project report at the end of the implementation period.
  4. Mentoring and Workshops: Scholars are paired with a mentor who can support them during their SDG Micro-Project development. Furthermore, the Ban Ki-moon Centre provides workshops and incentive speakers during regular virtual meetings with the scholars.

How to Apply

Describe a project that you would like to implement for the SDGs in your community. It does not need to be a formal proposal; however, it should include a short description of a challenge you wish to address and a manageable project idea that you could implement with minimal financial resources. If you can already think of partners who you would like to work with (local NGOs, schools, companies, city councils etc.), please list these. Should you be chosen for the scholarship, you will be able to adjust and revise the idea as you go through the program.
