No. For sponsorship you should apply to funding agencies.
Source of Funding, Sponsorship, Fellowship

1. CBN International is not a funding agency and therefore is unable to offer partial or full sponsorship.

2. Applicants should find their own sources of funding, either from their departments/governments or other sources including bilateral or multilateral agencies.

3. The majority of participants attending CBN International workshops are sponsored by their governments and departments.

4. However, some participants in the past had been successful in receiving partial or full sponsorship from international agencies such as DFID, UNDP, SIDA, CIDA, USAID, World Bank, GTZ, ADB, UNICEF etc.

5. Kindly note that none of the above funding agencies have any agreement with CBN International to provide sponsorship. We are also not aware of any other source of funding that is interested to sponsor participants in our workshops. Therefore, we are not able to provide participants with contact details of funding agencies.

6. The success of your application to receive a sponsorship will depend on:

a. your or your organization’s working relationship with a particular funding agency.
b. the degree to which you can convince a funding agency that your participation in the programme will benefit your current responsibility, improve your perform - ance and as aresult benefit the public.


7. It should be noted that obtaining fellowship is possible but very competitive. Applicants should therefore apply to more than one agency in order to increase their chances of being successful.
