About OAS Fellowships
The Inter-American Agency for Cooperation and Development (IACD) of the Organization of American States (OAS) administers one of the hemisphere’s largest multinational fellowships and training programs. Every year, the Agency provides several hundred fellowships for graduate studies and research, fellowships for undergraduate studies at universities through the region and awards for specialized, short-term training at educational institutions and training centers in OAS Member and Observer States.
Fellowship and training award programs are managed by the Division of Human Development of the Department of Information Technology for Human Development, Inter-American Agency for Cooperation and Development. As one of its strategic objectives, the Agency has implemented a multi-focused plan to increase fellowships and training opportunities and to expand access to knowledge through greater use of information technology. To this end, it is establishing a broad-based consortium of universities to co-finance fellowships.
Additionally, the Agency has established this Educational Portal for e-learning. As an element of this portal, the Division of Human Development has launched and currently manages a program of electronic fellowships (e-fellowships) as a more cost-effective mechanism for expanding fellowship and learning opportunities. The Agency also actively seeks partnership with other agencies involved in the award and financing of fellowships and mechanisms to facilitate access to educational loans to supplement the fellowship programs.
For further information or assistance, candidates should contact the National Liaison Office (ONE) of their country of origin, the appropriate Office of the General Secretariat of the OAS or contact the Educational Portal of the Americas.
