Here are some frequently asked questions. Take a look before reaching out directly!

Can I apply to UNHCR’s Innovation Fellowship?
If you’re a UNHCR colleague or a member of a partner organization, for sure! Keep an eye out on our Fellowship page to stay up to date, or – even better – sign up on that page to receive email updates.

Can I apply to UNHCR’s Innovation Funds?
If you’re a UNHCR colleague, you are eligible to apply to our Data Innovation, Digital Innovation, and Environment and Climate Action Innovation Funds. If you’re an organization run by displaced or stateless people, you’re eligible to apply to our Refugee-led Innovation Fund. Across all of these Funds, we encourage applicants to partner with non-government organizations and other entities.

Do you have any job openings?
All our job and internship opportunities are located on the UNHCR Careers page and ReliefWeb. Currently, we are not accepting volunteers, but check out UN Volunteers for other opportunities.

Can you support my thesis or academic studies?
We love that you’re interested in humanitarian innovation but we can’t financially support your studies. However, if you are working on a thesis related to humanitarian innovation, contact us below.

Can you make my document more innovative?
Innovation can mean a lot of things! We don’t provide design services, but look to our resources to help you adapt your document.
