Benefits include full coverage of expenses for a one-week Summer School at MCI Innsbruck, participation in expert workshops, peer mentoring, and a $500 seed funding for the implementation of their SDG Micro-Projects.

Upon successful completion, scholars will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by both Co-chairs of the Ban Ki-moon Centre, H.E. Ban Ki-moon and H.E. Dr. Heinz Fischer.
