Welcome Sierra Leone, Welcome Myanmar

Two new countries represented in Fellowship awards

2014-15 Fellowship awardees Jeelo Kainwo, Zainab Mansaray and Nawsan Jangma

Warm welcomes have been extended by Irish Aid to students from two new fellowship award countries - Sierra Leone and Myanmar.

Sierra Leone became eligible under the Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme for 2014-15 and two fellows commenced Master’s programmes in Ireland in September in the areas of International Criminal Law and Sustainable Development.

In addition, the Metta Fellowship for Myanmar got underway with an awardee commencing a Master’s programme at Kimmage Development Studies Centre.

Across all Irish Aid fellowship strands, a total of 74 awards were made for study in Ireland, with an additional 31 regional fellowships allocated.

We wish all awardees good luck with their studies!
