Award Ceremony: UNESCO-Association Vocations Patrimoine Fellowships

The UNESCO-VOCATIONS PATRIMOINE Fellowships for World Heritage Site Managers Programme aims to reinforce the capacity of professionals currently working or intending to work in the near future, in the management, conservation and development of a World Heritage property.

Launched in January 2006, the Fellowships are made possible as a result of an innovative public-private partnership between the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and a French non-governmental organization, Association Vocations Patrimoine, supported by the multinational groups AXA and MAZARS.

This partnership aims to reinforce the capacity of professionals currently working or intending to work in the near future, in the management, conservation and development of a World Heritage property. The purpose is to give these professionals the skills and the access to an interdisciplinary program in order to train them to be better managers of world cultural and natural heritage sites.

Five fellowships for graduate studies of a Master of Arts or of Science level in fields related to management of cultural and natural heritage properties will be awarded. Fellowships are offered in connection with the Master of Arts in World Heritage Studies at Brandenburg Technical University, Cottbus, Germany, and with the Master of Science in World Heritage Management at University College Dublin, Ireland.
