2014/2015 Kader Asmal Fellowship for South Africans to study in Ireland.

Deadline:  17 February 2014.

Canon Collins Trust, on behalf of the Government of Ireland, invites applications for the Kader Asmal Fellowship Programme. Under this fellowship programme, Irish Aid supports students from South Africa to undertake Masters or Postgraduate Diploma level studies in Ireland in strategically-important disciplines including finance, business, engineering, sustainable technologies and public health and nutrition.

Canon Collins Trust invites applications for scholarships for postgraduate study in Ireland  commencing in September 2014, in the following subject areas:
• Business Management
• Agriculture, Food Science & Nutrition; and
• Public Administration

Fellowships will be available for one-year post-graduate courses available in the Universities and
Institutes of Technology listed on www.educationinireland.ie.

The fellowships include tuition fees, a return flight to Ireland, and monthly stipend, insurance and a
settling in allowance.  Applicants must apply separately to the university but need do this only once an offer of a fellowship has been made.

The fellowship programme has two strands:

  1.  Eight annual awards for postgraduate study in
  • Business Management;
  • Agriculture, Food Science & nutrition; and
  • Public Administration

2. A fellowship in Human Rights Law at Trinity College Dublin to be selected by the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC)
