The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is inviting applications for CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme 2016, offering six fellowships in the month of October, to government officials and representatives of civil society organizations working in key positions within the field of adult learning and education (ALE) in UNESCO Member States.
