Africa Land and Food Fellowships Programme 2014/15

Deadline: January 3, 2014

Applications for 2014-15 Africa Land and Food Fellowships at the Royal Agricultural University are now invited. The programme is specifically linked to the MSc International Rural Development and the MSc Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security courses. Fellowships are offered to Africans mainly from Sub-Saharan Africa who have experience in agriculture, food or natural resource exploitation and management; an interest in land reform; and a desire to make a strategic and sustainable contribution to Africa’s development. In short, tomorrow’s innovators and leaders.

Scholarships cover tuition fees, board and accommodation, flights to and from the UK and South Africa, provision for networking and a short industrial placement mainly in South Africa under the guidance of Stellenbosch University. Scholarships also cover incidental costs whilst in the UK and on placement in South Africa; however, applicants are advised that funding does not include provision for home and family costs.

Eligibility

  • Nationals from sub-Saharan Africa are invited to apply for an Africa’s Land and Food Fellowship.

  • If you are a national of one of the following countries (Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda), then you can apply for a Chevening Scholarship as part of your scholarship application.
