Open Call for Individual Applications for the Global Model UN Conference
Deadline for Applications – 20 May 2009
UNDPI is now inviting individual students to apply to be delegates. This call follows the receipt of nominations from Model UNs around the world which were given first choice in sending their best delegates to the conference.
The criteria for acceptance of an individual delegate are as follows:
All applicants must be at least 18 but not older than 24 years of age by 6 August 2009 and must be enrolled in a university during the 2008-2009 academic year.
Applicants must have at least one year of Model UN experience (full participation in a Model UN conference as a delegate or member of the secretariat).
- Completion of application and other forms
i. Complete and submit the ‘‘individual delegate application form” on the website.
ii. Each applicant must complete the “proof of enrolment form” and have it signed by their university’s administrative office.
iii. Each applicant must complete an essay of no more 400 words on his/her experience as a delegate in a Model United Nations. Kindly be advised that the submission of the essay constitutes an implicit agreement that UNDPI may use excerpts or quotes from the essays to promote the Global Model United Nations.
Each applicant is required to provide a photocopy of his/her passport ID page (showing full name, nationality and photo) along with the application form.
Applicants should be fluent in English and/or French. Knowledge of another UN official language (Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Russian) would be welcomed. UNDPI is looking into the possibility of providing interpretation services in other official UN languages based on need and numbers of delegates from different regions.
All the above must be submitted together by 20 May 2009 to the email address education-outreach @un.org. Students are asked to put Global Model UN Individual Application and their name in the subject line of the email when submitting their applications.
Please be advised that students accepted as delegates will be responsible for their travel to and from Geneva and for the cost of their accommodation, transportation and meals. See details on accommodation in Geneva and visa applications on the Global Model UN website – www.un.org/gmun.
The UNDPI will try to identify sponsors for students from developing countries who cannot afford to cover their expenses. However, they must show proof of their attempts to raise funds to cover their participation.
