Support Scholarships

Scholarships promoted within the Knowledge Network Talent Development Platform can be funded by UNWTO Members and Partners for tuition, research, or educational expenses at an UNWTO Affiliate Member educational institution preferably those with a TedQual certified programme.

Scholarship opportunities will be made available through the Knowledge Network Talent Development Platform for students and young professionals from institutions of the Affiliate Members and institutions with TedQual certified programmes. The Knowledge Network can target educational institutions with outstanding young talents to take advantage of scholarship opportunities.

While scholarships are open to highly qualified students worldwide, a special effort can be set on providing scholarships to those coming from developing countries in response to the urge to build a pool of highly qualified professionals in such countries.

The Knowledge Network can facilitate the following:

  • Calling for collaboration of the UNWTO Members to share international internship opportunities
  • Sharing scholarship opportunities in its media outlets and directly to the UNWTO Members, Knowledge Network Community and TedQual certified programmes
  • Providing suggested guidelines and recommendations for scholarships
  • Providing assistance to the UNWTO Members in filtering applications
  • Gathering information on scholarship recipients within the platform and sharing their stories

Please review the attached guidelines to find out more about scholarship opportunities eligible for promotion through the Talent Development Platform.
