Royal Agricultural University invites applications for the Africa’s Land and Food Masters Fellowship Program. Since the Fellowship was launched in 2005, over £1.8 million has been generously provided by the private sector, foundations and charities in support of the programme. Ten (10) fellowships will be awarded. Fellows subsequently return to Africa and many are now making significant leadership contributions through their various occupations to managing change in rural development, food supply and security, farming, agribusiness, agricultural education, research and in government.
The programme is linked to four Masters Programmes: MSc’s in International Rural Development, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security and Business Management plus the MBA in International Food and Agri-business.
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.
- 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.
- Incidental costs whilst in the UK and on placement; however, applicants are advised that funding does not include provision for home and family costs.
