Kader Asmal Fellowship Programme 2022/23

Kader Asmal Fellowship

The Embassy of Ireland in South Africa is offering fully-funded scholarship opportunities to South African students to study at Master’s level in Ireland’s world-renowned Higher Education Institutions.


The Kader Asmal Fellowship Programme is targeting early career professionals in South Africa, with leadership potential.

The scholarship broadly supports leadership for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which includes support for the development of women’s leadership capacity and women’s participation in STEM as key priorities.

In addition, the Kader Asmal Fellowship Programme aims to support students from Historically Disadvantaged Institutions and Universities of Technology, who would not otherwise have had the opportunity to pursue Master’s level education in Ireland.

These students are encouraged to apply.
