For Country Partners
The Ireland Fellows Programme has been running for over 45 years and has supported the professional development of personnel in our key partner countries and in organisations working to promote development.
A large proportion of fellowships each year are awarded to the staff of government departments and NGOs which work in partnership with Irish Aid. In some partner countries, fellowships are also awarded to personnel of organisations that are aligned with Irish Aid's development strategy in their country. To find out if personnel from your organisation are eligible to apply, please contact the relevant Embassy of Ireland.
Each year, dozens of partner organisations benefit from the return of staff to key positions after being supported by the Ireland Fellows Programme which have enabled them to attain enhanced skills, knowledge and experience - and the ability to share the benefit of their learning with colleagues. To find out if this applies to applicants from your country, please contact the relevant Embassy of Ireland.
