Recruiting the University of Heidelberg's delegation to
Harvard WorldMUN 2019
The application for the 28th Harvard WorldMUN Conference taking place in Madrid, Spain (March 18-22, 2019) is now open. Please fill out the form below and send it to us by clicking the Submit-button. Recruitment will close on Sunday, October 28th, 2018, at midnight. That means you still have the entire day to submit your application.
We are looking for open-minded, politically and culturally interested students enrolled at the University of Heidelberg. In order to make WorldMUN available for all students, we do engage in extensive fundraising every year. Due to our experience gained over the years, we do not have to cover the conference costs entirely, but expect a contribution of around 350 Euro per delegate. We do not turn applicants away because they can't afford it. For us, it is clear that the opportunity to experience WorldMUN must not depend on a student's financial situation.
After the first round consisting of the written application below, we will invite promising candidates to the second round consisting of interview sessions, where we will get to know each other in person. The interview sessions will take place at the University of Heidelberg between October 29th and November 1st, 2018. Each applicant will receive further information via email.
Newcomers to MUN are most welcome to apply – training sessions (starting with an introductory full-day training on November 10th) and obligatory participation in KaMUN 2018 in Karlsruhe (November 23-25) as well as Heidelberg National MUN 2019 (January 12-13, 2019) will prepare you for the conference!
In addition to the questions below, we would like you to submit via email two documents at the end of this application: a recent CV, and a one-page-text on the topics set out below. You should first prepare these documents, and then fill out the forms below and send the two files.
When filling in the following pieces of information, please make use of the English language and take the size of the text boxes as a suggestion for the degree of elaboration we would welcome. Keep in mind that at a MUN-conference, you will usually not have more than one minute to answer any given question!
