Manx post graduates are being offered financial assistance to be part of intern programmes with the United Nations.

The Charles Colvington Trust was founded in October last year, named after the man who formed the United Nations Association of the Isle of Man – which planned to raise the profile of the UN on Island and allow others to benefit from its initiatives.

Chair of the trust, Steve Rodan, says those who become involved have the benefit of working with the UN with others from around the world along with representing Manx heritage.

Post graduate students interested in applying or want more information should contact the association secretary on 07624 488 540 or at iomuna@manx.net
