Regional Academy on the United Nations

The Regional Academy on the United Nations (RAUN) an international, multidisciplinary education initiative that brings together United Nations' Organizations and outstanding Master and PhD students. As part of the seven-month-long program, students get the opportunity to conduct hands-on research projects for the Agencies and to attend lectures and interactive workshops in different countries given by experts and practitioners. RAUN’s aim is to provide participants with in-depth knowledge and resources about internal organizations and their functions, to raise their cultural awareness and openness, and to offer a forum for networking and academic exchange.

Currently, we are inviting applications for the 2020-2021 RAUN academic year. The program will start in May this year and will deal with the theme:  “Partnership and Cooperation for the Future: 75 years of UN Action”. The deadline for applications is 3 April 2020.


RAUN is a non-profit organization operated entirely by volunteers. Except for a service charge of 150€, we do not charge participants any fees and we offer scholarships for those students who are otherwise not able to finance their participation. You can find more
