    I have a few queries in regards to the internship. Firstly, I could not find the information regarding international travel and accommodation costs in any of the websites that I have visited. Please kindly specify if the interns will be provided with these specific costs during the internship.

    Secondly, I am a scholarship participant for the upcoming Women Deliver Conference 2016. I have found in the attachment that the interns will be required to help the preparatory team during the conference. Could you kindly inform me if that is going to be an issue while being in the scholarship participant of Women Deliver and also in the preparatory team of UN Women for the conference ?

    I would really appreciate if you could kindly revert back to my queries at your earliest convenience
