I thought this could be of interest for affiliates from developing
countries dealing with ICT4Development research and related areas:
"UNESCO is calling on young researchers with advanced degrees (M.A., M.Sc.
or equivalent) in developing countries to apply to the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi
Research Fellowship Programme for fellowships ranging from US$ 6,000 to US$
10,000. The amount varies according to duration and place of study. The
Programme is financed by Japan through its funds in trust programme for
capacity-building of human resources.
The Programme is named after the late Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi,
who was known for his commitment to furthering development. It grants a
total of 20 fellowships a year to researchers in four areas: environment,
intercultural dialogue, information and communication technologies, and
peaceful conflict resolution. (...)"
