Fellowships Applications

WMO Fellowships Programme

The aim of the WMO Fellowships Programme is to support the education and training of qualified and suitable candidates, particularly from least developed and developing countries and Small Island Developing States. WMO may award both short-term (more than one month and less than six months) and long-term (6 months or longer) fellowships, based on recommendations of the Education and Training Committee (ETCOM) and in alignment with the priorities of the Education and Training Programme.
