Fellows are not remunerated, however they receive a monthly stipend intended to cover the cost of lodging, board and other basic expenses while outside their home country. Stipend rates are established by the United Nations and are reviewed periodically on the basis of actual expenditures incurred by fellows in the various countries of study.

Ad-hoc rates:

In addition to the stipend rates, the ad-hoc rates are also available for few duty stations (see below). These ad-hoc rates are established to reflect the current actual expenditures incurred by fellows. Ad-hoc rates are approved by the Office of Human Resources (OHR) upon the review of cost of living questionnaire endorsed by the local UNDP office. The ad-hoc rates should be used when applicable. The ad-hoc rates are included in the same PDF at the bottom of the document.
