This year’s UN General Assembly session will open during a critical time for the world, with a new UN Secretary-General and a new U.S. President and as the international community faces the largest displacement crisis since the end of World War II, 20 million people on the brink of famine, climate change, and a number of security challenges. It will also take place as countries, businesses, and individuals are taking action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and a world of dignity for all. The UN Foundation’s press fellowship will offer direct access to UN and other experts on the front lines of addressing these global issues.

In addition to providing briefings and roundtables with high-level experts, the fellowship will provide access to side events and the one-day Social Good Summit.

The fellowship is intended for reporters who do not have regular access to key UN experts, but are interested in foreign affairs, humanitarian issues, sustainable development, climate change, and the United Nations. Journalists will receive a stipend to cover travel costs.
