Irish Aid Fellowship Training Programme

This is one of the instruments used by Irish Aid to support capacity development in Ireland's programme countries in Africa and Asia.  The FTP involves the award of fellowships to suitably qualified candidates from the target countries to undertake studies usually at postgraduate level in fields such as development studies, rural development, health care and education and other disciplines which are likely to support and enhance the capacity of recipients to contribute to the development effort in their own countries.

Irish Aid’s partner countries are Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, Lesotho, Palestine, Timor Leste and Vietnam and Malawi.
