UNESCO - Silk Roads Youth Research Fellowships

As part of the ongoing work of the Silk Roads program, to better understand the rich history and shared heritage and spirit of the Silk Roads, UNESCO with the support of the National Commission of the People's Republic of China for UNESCO, has established the "Silk Roads Youth Research Fellowship" in 2021 within the framework of UNESCO's Social and Human Sciences Sector. The second edition of this call has now been launched.

This initiative, which aims to mobilize young researchers for a more in-depth study of the common heritage of the Silk Roads, will award twelve research fellowships to young women and men under the age of 35.

Fellowship applicants are invited to address areas of academic study related to the common heritage and plural identities of the Silk Roads, as well as its internal diversity and potential in contemporary societies for creativity, intercultural dialogue, social cohesion, regional and international cooperation, and ultimately sustainable peace and development.

The deadline for submission of proposals is May 31, 2022, after which the list of awardees will be announced at the end of September 2022.
