Unesco Fellowship Handbook

    Article metrics


    THE secretarias an Unesco has prepared a most useful handbook providing details of all available opportunities for trans-national study and organised arrangements made in this field, which should be of real assistance to those wishing to travel out of their own countries for purposes of study. The handbook, which is intended to be the first of a series, constitutes a repository of information on the considerable investments by governments, universities, foundations and charitable institutions in the promotion of international study. Whether these fellowships or awards are designed to assist the reconstruction or development of a particular country, to encourage scientific research, to stimulate artistic exchange or to promote international understanding in general, they represent a striking volume of assistance from many sources to individuals chosen for their capacity to advance the course of learning and to profit from the cultural heritage of countries other than their own. Copies of the handbook, which may be obtained from H.M. Stationery Office, price 55., show that more than ten thousand opportunities for international study are available for the year 1948–49.
