May 31 2014
Because of the short lead time given by the PGA, there is very little time for posting of the announcement and the application form. In order for the UN to process the travel grants in time, the deadline to apply for a grant is Monday, June 2nd

Announcement forwarded by Kenneth Deer, Member of the Board of Trustees of the UN Voluntary Fund for Indigenous Peoples

To Indigenous Representatives,

The UN Voluntary Fund for Indigenous Peoples is mandated by the Modalities resolution to fund Indigenous participants to the HLPM/WCIP process.

To meet this obligation, the Fund will cover three travel grants per region to the Interactive Hearings which will take place on June 17-18, 2014, in New York.

Because of the short lead time given by the PGA, there is very little time for posting of the announcement and the application form. In order for the UN to process the travel grants in time, the deadline to apply for a grant is Monday, June 2nd.

Indigenous representatives from North America who wish to apply for a grant to the Interactive Hearings should consult the Fund's website at http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/IPeoples/IPeoplesFund/Pages/IPeoplesFundIndex.aspx. The information is in the top righthand corner.

As well, the application form is attached and can be filled out and sent to adesouza@ohchr.org by Monday, June 2nd.

Successful applicants will be notified very quickly after the application deadline.
