MA in International Development Scholarship

We are delighted to announce two new international student scholarships for the MA in International Development in 2020 -21. Each scholarship is for €7,000 (the equivalent of half the full-time international (non-EU) fees). This is a unique opportunity for the successful candidates to be able to develop their understanding and skills in the area of international development. Applying critical learning approaches, they will be enabled to reflect on their own experience in the light of development theories, policies and different approaches to practice. They will also be prepared for work in the international development field through linking development theory with practice, seeking alternatives to current development processes, and learning how to turn development aspirations into realities in the Global South and North.
 
Applicants must intend to pursue a full-time taught Master’s degree in International Development at Maynooth University in the academic year 2020-21 and meet the following eligibility criteria:

  1. Demonstrated experience (3 years or more) in community development or global development in areas such as social justice, human rights, development education, volunteering or campaigning.
  2. Applicants will need to demonstrate, through the provision of official academic transcripts, that they have achieved (or will achieve in summer 2020) a 2.1 upper 2nd class honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent).
  3. Applications will be accepted from candidates living outside of the EU who can satisfy the eligibility criteria for the Master’s programme. Graduates from universities (both national and international) are welcome to apply, including applicants graduating in 2020.
  4. Applicants are required to complete and submit their CV and expression of interest to the Department of International Development by 17th April 2020
