United Nations University Scholarships 2021/2022 Updated

The United Nations (UN), with its headquarters in New York City,  is an intergovernmental organization responsible for maintaining international peace and developing friendly relations among nations, achieving international cooperation, and being a center for harmonizing the actions of nations.

United Nations scholarships are offered to international students, by United Nations for study or research purposes. These are also called as financial aid and many times the financial aid office of the United Nations deals with it. The UNU’s Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) offers an MSc degree program and a PhD degree program to produce scholars who will become key researchers in the field of sustainability science. The Japan Foundation offers the UNU Scholarship for outstanding applicants from developing countries who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance.


Masters Scholarships:

The Master of Science in Sustainability programme is a two-year programme, which provides students with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to contribute to solving challenges of sustainability. Drawing on an innovative, interdisciplinary approach, the programme integrates methods and resources from the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities.



The programme is intended for recent graduates, professionals and practitioners who seek to meaningfully contribute to the work of governments, civil society, the private sector, and/or the UN and other international organizations in the area of sustainability.



The programme starts in September, and by July of the second year students must complete the course requirements, obtaining at least 30 credits. Students can select courses from those offered by UNU-IAS, while also enjoying the opportunity to take courses at other leading universities in Japan such as the University of Tokyo, Sophia University, International Christian University, and Yokohama National University.


Masters Degree Scholarships provided through Japan Foundation for UNU (JFUNU):

The JFUNU scholarship provides a monthly allowance of 120,000 JPY for living expenses for a maximum of 24 months. However, travel costs to and from Japan, visa handling fees, and health/accident insurance costs must be covered by the student. The tuition fees are fully waived for the scholarship recipients.
*The amount of monthly allowance has been changed to 120,000 JPY effective.

Eligibility criteria:

    1. Applicants must be persons from developing countries* who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance
    2. Applicants who are currently living in Japan under a working visa are NOT eligible for the scholarship
  1. Applicants who want to pursue a second master’s degree at UNU-IAS are not eligible for the scholarship.


PhD Scholarship:

The PhD programme in Sustainability Science is a three-year programme that aims to produce scholars who will become key researchers in the field of sustainability science. The programme takes an innovative approach to sustainability, seeking to promote a better understanding of the issues by incorporating global change perspectives, specifically those related to climate change and biodiversity.



The programme starts in September, and by July of their third year students are expected to complete all of the course requirements, obtaining at least 14 credits. Students can select courses from those offered by UNU-IAS, while also enjoying the opportunity to take courses at other leading universities in Japan such as the University of Tokyo, Sophia University, and International Christian University.
