NOTE: Applications for GIMUN have now closed.
Pace University’s New York City Model UN program will help cover the costs of between five and 15 students who wish to attend the prestigious Geneva International Model United Nations (GIMUN) conference, held at the UN’s Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, 17-23 March 2012. The theme of the conference, which will be held in simultaneously in both English and French will be “Achieving Dialogue and Development through Cultural Diversity.”
Unlike with most Model UN conferences, GIMUN “accepts individual delegates and not delegations” – students can apply to participate as Delegates. Pace MUN students will travel together and stay together with the MUN faculty advisor, however, they will participate in their own delegations, not necessarily alongside other Pace students.
To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to go through a two-step application process:
- You will need to complete an application to the Pace NYC MUN program (email to firstname.lastname@example.org), which will include a draft of your application to GIMUN by 5 December (the earlier you complete it, the more likely you will get a spot),
- If you are approved by Pace NYC MUN program, then you will need to submit your application directly to GIMUN by 31 January (the head delegates will assist you with this).
