ILO Master Fellowship in conjunction with ICOH 2024 Congress
In occasion of the ICOH 2024 Congress, a partial fellowship to attend the ILO Master in Occupational Safety and Health 2024-2025 (International Training Centre of the ILO in collaboration with the University of Turin, Italy) will be assigned for two ICOH candidates from low and middle income countries who will present a scientific contribution at the congress. The partial economic support will cover the accommodation and breakfast on the campus of the International Training Centre of the ILO in Turin (ITC-ILO), Italy during the residential phase of 11 weeks.
When submitting an abstract to ICOH 2024 Congress (https://icoh24.wemiceyou.com/sign-in), participants interested in the ILO Master in Occupational Safety and Health have the possibility to apply for the ILO Master Fellowship. Applicants complying with criteria set out (ICOH members from low and middle income countries in good standing of 31 December 2023; who have presented a scientific contribution to ICOH 2024 Congress) will be contacted by ICOH Secretariat in order to ask for an extended CV and check if they have the following requirements for admission to the programme:
- hold a first university degree (BA) of minimum three years duration;
- be no older than 40 years of age. In exceptional circumstances, candidates who are older than 40 years of age may be accepted if they have graduated no more than five years prior to the time of application. In these cases, candidates will be asked to provide written documentation as proof of the date of their graduation;
- have a working knowledge of spoken and written English;
- have the ability and access to use computer and Internet.
Applicants will also be requested to submit a written statement duly signed where they declare that, in case of winning the fellowship, they commit themselves to attend the Master and they are aware they will receive a partial grant of € 4,345.00 to cover the accommodation and breakfast on the campus of ITC/ILO.
