Irish Aid Study Fellowship Training Programme 2011/2012 Academic year

The Government of Ireland, under the Bilateral Aid Programme of the Department of Foreign Affairs (known as Irish Aid), offers a number of Study Fellowship Awards annually to candidates from Irish Aid’s programme countries (namely - Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia), to further their education in Ireland or within their own region.

Fellowships are offered in areas which are particularly relevant to the development of the individual’s home country.

·       Fellowships are offered at Postgraduate Diploma/Masters level.

We encourage applications for study in the areas of Local Government, Private Sector Development, Employment Creation and Gender Equality.

The applicant is normally in employment in their home country and would obtain leave from their employer for the period of study. On completion of the course the applicant would resume employment in their home country where the qualification would be expected to enhance their own development and contribute towards the continued development of their country.
