Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme

2012-13 Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme awardees studying in Ireland

Each year, the Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme brings suitably qualified candidates from developing countries to undertake postgraduate studies at colleges and universities in Ireland. Further students are supported for courses in their own region. Awards are made in fields such as development studies, rural development, health care, education and law.

The programme is one of the ways in which Irish Aid supports capacity development in its key partner countries in Africa and Asia, and also in Palestine (see right for full list of participating countries).

Study fellowships are awarded by Irish Aid with the aim of supporting and enhancing the contribution recipients can make to development efforts in their own countries.

ICOS works closely with Irish Aid on the management and administration of the Fellowship Training Programme.
