UN open applications for United Nations Academic Impact Global Youth Forum 2016. 60 students from UN countries will be selected as delegates. Participation is fully funded. Deadline to apply is March 31.

To get an opportunity to share your ideas and be heard in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations, young people have to write an original essay (2,000 words or less) discussing global citizenship and cultural understanding and the role that multilingual ability can play in fostering these.

The essay should:

More than that, you must be a full-time university student, recommended and endorsed by a Faculty Member or University Representative, and must be 18 years of age or older by the contest deadline.
