Company/Organization: GLobal Education Opportunity Program


Since 2003, students from a variety of universities, particularly from the US and the UK, have come to the United Nations in Geneva with the intent of increasing the awareness on human rights issues by attending conferences and events at the United Nations and International Organizations.

The students have conducted independent research, helped with UN Conferences and Panels, and presented oral statements at the Human Rights Council.

These activities have given students firsthand experiences in dealing with topics such as the human right to peace, women’s right to education, and women’s health issues, among others.

By participating in conferences such as the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) and the World Health Assembly (WHA), GEO students have networked with international experts, UN officials, Country ministers and delegates as well as other grassroots organizers from whom they have found to be exceptional mentors.

Students receive first hand experience by glimpsing how the international community develops a plan of action and how UN bodies operate at the international, regional, and local levels. They also enjoy the opportunity to live in Geneva, a international city which serves as the global hub for humanitarian agencies, NGOs, and international organizations.

This program allows participants to integrate their personal areas of interest, such as international relations, health, or gender issues, and learn how it can be applied to different fields of study from the international to the local level, thus expanding their knowledge and expertise.


Ideal applicants are upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates who studied in or are pursuing degrees related to international relations, public health, international law, or human rights.
