I thought this could be of interest for affiliates from developing 
countries dealing with ICT4Development research and related areas:

"UNESCO is calling on young researchers with advanced degrees (M.A., M.Sc. 
or equivalent) in developing countries to apply to the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi 
Research Fellowship Programme for fellowships ranging from US$ 6,000 to US$ 
10,000. The amount varies according to duration and place of study. The 
Programme is financed by Japan through its funds in trust programme for 
capacity-building of human resources.

The Programme is named after the late Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi, 
who was known for his commitment to furthering development. It grants a 
total of 20 fellowships a year to researchers in four areas: environment, 
intercultural dialogue, information and communication technologies, and 
peaceful conflict resolution. (...)"
