Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to students. 

The scholarship includes tuition, registration fees and medical aid. 

Applications for a scholarship can be indicated in the application form. A support letter from a trade union organisation is an application requirement.


The ILO department for South-South cooperation is sponsoring two scholarships dedicated to further strengthening South-South cooperation. Applicants are requested to submit an outline for a research proposal focussing in particular on experiences, challenges and opportunities of South-South cooperation between trade unions and other workers’ organisations.  Within the programme they will have the opportunity to look at the role of developing countries in global supply chain, the role of labour standards in South-South relations, best practice in information exchange, policy coordination and solidarity among developing countries.


We thank the ILO Regional African Office for providing a number of scholarships for students from the African region.
