The Royal Agricultural University Africa is accepting applications for the 2017 Land & Food Fellowship. 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.
This funding is provided for leadership training; the development of professional networks and supporting industrial experience, together with study opportunities on Master’s programmes in agriculture, agri-business, food and rural development at the Royal Agricultural University.
- Fellowships 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;
- Fellowships 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.
- 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.
Deadline: January 31, 2017
