OECS : Opportunity for nationals to study in Ireland

Nationals from select OECS Member States who are interested in Masters level studies relevant to climate change, the blue economy and associated challenges, can access a scholarship through the Government of Ireland.  

The Irish Government’s Programme for Overseas Development (Irish Aid) has announced the 2020/21 Call for Ireland-SIDS Fellows Programme.   

The initiative seeks to nurture future SIDS leaders, women and men; to develop in-country capacity to address climate change and its associated challenges, and to build positive relationships between Ireland and SIDS. 

On return home, graduates are expected to bring their acquired skills to contribute to capacity building in their home countries.  The Programme will offer select students the opportunity to undertake a fully-funded one-year Masters level programme at a higher education institute (HEI) in Ireland.  

Eligible countries in the Caribbean region include Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Cuba, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname. 

The deadline for applications is January 31, 2020.
