How do I know if I’m eligible for the scholarship?

  • Agriculture and Development
  • Applied International Development
  • Climate Change and Development

6. Those who have already pursued study at the Master’s level will not normally be considered unless this forms part of the entry level criteria.

8. Receipt of an application form in and of itself DOES NOT mean that the candidate is eligible to apply; you must meet all of the eligibility criteria listed above.

What are the selection criteria?

Candidates who fully meet the criteria above will then be shortlisted against three main factors: academic excellence, professional experience (includes experience gained in a voluntary capacity), and the potential for contribution to development in their home country after completion of their degree programme. Shortlisted applicants will then be reviewed by a selection panel chaired by the Director of GIIDAE.
