EWI Civil Society Research Scholarships
The UCD Egalitarian World Initiative (EWI) offers two research scholarships for civil society activists in each academic year.
These scholarships are funded by the Combat Poverty Agency and hosted by the EWI in UCD. They are worth 10,000 euro each. The scholarships are designed to support people based in non-governmental organisations in Ireland who are actively working for social change on issues relating to poverty, social exclusion and social justice. The scholarship provides the resources to the organisation to allow the activist take research ‘time out’ and spend three months at UCD within the EWI working on a project of their choice.
A call is put out each year and the closing date for applications for the current year was Monday June 29th 2009. Further information from Dr Pauline Faughnan, EWI Coordinator, Equality Studies Centre, UCD School of Social Justice, UCD – firstname.lastname@example.org
