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.


Awards under the Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme are targeted at nine participating countries with which Ireland has established development cooperation programmes: Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Palestine, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia.

To be eligible, applicants must be citizens of one of these partner countries and be residing in that country. In addition, applicants must be currently employed by an Irish Aid partner organisation and be nominated by that organisation to apply.

Potential candidates must obtain leave from their employer to undertake the course and, on completion, are expected to return home, resume their employment and put their qualifications into practice.

Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme applicants must also:

  • have a minimum of three years relevant work experience;
  • be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the development of their home country;
  • have identified up to two relevant Postgraduate Diploma or Taught Masters courses in Ireland or within their own region;
  • be able to take up the fellowship in the academic year for which it is offered;
  • provide a letter from their employer granting study leave for the duration of the fellowship and guaranteeing that they will be able to return to an equivalent position in the organisation at the end of the fellowship period
  • apply using the correct application form and by the stated deadline

Scholarship Application Method

A guide to courses eligible for Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme awards is available to consult at the Embassy of Ireland in participating countries from September of each year.

Embassies will also provide copies of the fellowship application form.

Once you have obtained the application form, you should read the accompanying notes carefully before completing any of the sections.

You should also have identified the postgraduate programme you wish to undertake.

The deadline for submission of the form is 31st December but earlier submission to the Irish Embassy/Mission is advised.
When returning the form, you will be asked to provide a certified photocopy of several documents.

(A certified photocopy is one which has been signed and stamped by an authorised person – such as a Justice of the Peace, a Notary Public, a lawyer or a solicitor, etc. – as being true and correct.

The authorised person needs to sign, print their name and position and, if possible, affix an official stamp to all pages of each copy).

Please note that all applications for the Fellowship Training Programme should be submitted directly to the Irish Embassy/Mission, not to ICOS or Irish Aid.

You are advised not to apply for a course before being notified of the status of your Fellowship application. However, if you have already applied for a course at the time of submitting your fellowship application, you should indicate this clearly on your form and include photocopies of all related correspondence.

Scholarship Applications are due on 31st December, 2013.
