On June 22nd, 2020, the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens launched the Global Citizen Scholarship Program 2020 in partnership with RELX and Université de Bordeaux. Due to #COVID19, the scholarship program has been adapted to include an online training, expert workshops, and one-on-one mentoring sessions. The scholarship program is catering to 6 outstanding scholars from African countries and will last a total of six months.
The first day of the program held an introductory session for all the participants, followed by an overview of the one-week online summer program the Global Citizen Scholars will attend. The intensive online training developed by Université de Bordeaux. will focus on “COVID-19 in #Africa: multidisciplinary insights”.
In the following weeks, the scholars will receive online one-on-one mentoring throughout the completion of their “#SDG Micro-Project”, attend expert online workshops hosted by the Ban Ki-moon Centre, and finally obtain a Certificate of Achievement from the centre signed by Co-chairs Ban Ki-moon and Heinz Fischer.
