2016/2017 RAU African Land & Food Fellowship For Sub Sahara African Citizens

2016/2017 RAU African Land & Food Fellowship For Sub Sahara African Citizens

Deadline: 31st October 2015

Nationals from sub-Saharan Africa are invited to apply for a Fellowship. In order to help you focus on the main objectives of the programme, we are introducing a two-stage process; Expressions of interest (EOI), followed by an invitation to apply to the Royal Agricultural University (and other possible funders).

Target Group: Fellowships are open to Africans from Sub-Saharan Africa who have experience in agriculture, agri-business, food or natural resource 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.

Scholarship Benefits

Scholarships cover tuition fees, board and accommodation, flights to and from the UK, provision for networking and a short industrial placement either in Africa or in the UK. Scholarships also cover incidental costs whilst in the UK and on placement; however, applicants are advised that funding does not include provision for home and family costs. Furthermore, Fellows are expected to return to their own countries following their UK studies to complete their programme and ‘begin to make a difference’.

Applicants are invited to express their interest in the Fellowship programme (EOI) by completing a shortened application form consisting of a short CV and a response to two key development questions. In this EOI we are particularly interested to hear about the development challenges facing your community or business sector and would like to know how you think you could make a difference when you return home after completing the Fellowship programme.

Download the Expression of Interest form. 

This EOI should be e-mailed to African.Fellowshipapplications@rau.ac.uk.

During September we will review EOI’s and advise applicants if they have been long-listed for funding and the deadlines for full applications. For those who are unsuccessful at this stage, we will identify possible other sources of funding and invite you to apply as an African Scholar using the normal on-line application forms for your preferred course(s).

 How To Apply

Those long-listed from the submitted EOI’s will be sent a Fellowship application form to complete along with forms for Referees.

If you have submitted your EOI by e-mail, we will send forms back to the e-mail used; if you have posted the EOI then we will also send you the application forms by post.

 All applicants long-listed from their EOI’s should apply by e-mail attaching the relevant forms to the Royal Agricultural University by the deadline of the 31st October 2015. These should then be submitted electronically to African.Fellowshipapplications@rau.ac.uk or posted to the address specified on the forms.

If you are experiencing difficulties in submitting forms, you can call Admissions on
+44(0)1285 889 912, or email admissions@rau.ac.uk quoting African Fellowship in the subject line.

Once we have received your application, we will draw up a short-list of those we wish to offer a place tosubject to funding for the course you have selected. Applicants who have been shortlisted for funding will be informed by the end of November in writing. For those who are unsuccessful we may be able to identify other possible other sources of funding and invite you to apply as an African Scholar using the normal on-line application forms for your preferred course(s)

We recommend you keep a copy of the completed forms for your records.
