Georgetown Fall MUN Conference

Welcome to Georgetown Qatar's Model United Nations Program

Our NEW 2019 Fall MUN Conference will be Oct 31 - Nov 2


The FIRST Georgetown Fall MUN conference will be held at Georgetown University, Qatar. Please note that this conference is ONLY open to high school students in Qatar. We invite interested schools to apply and bring a team of 6 student delegates (one delegation) to the conference. The conference will not interfere with school timings. The maximum we can accommodate is three delegations or 18 students per school. We do not accept individual delegates, if your school is bringing its own delegation(s). If your school does not have a MUN club or MUN counselor, please email us at qatarmun@georgetown.edu 

There is no conference fee and attendance to the conference is FREE. However, we will not accept walk-ins on the day of the conference. Conference participants will be provided dinner/lunch for the duration of the conference.

Accepted students will have country allocations sent to them after the counselor submits the application. Delegates are required to research both the country they will represent at the conference as well as the specific topics to be debated in their assigned committee.

All of our committees are chaired by Georgetown University Qatar students.

The application for Fall MUN is now closed. We hope to see you at our annual GMUN Feb 20-23, 2020. To learn more, click HERE
