Food Security MSc Scholarships at Cork University Ireland 2020

The Cork University Business School is inviting applications for the New Food Security MSc Scholarships in Ireland for the 2020/2021 academic session.

‘Food insecurity and malnutrition present enormous challenges worldwide, with one in three of the world’s population experiencing malnutrition,’ says Dr. Nick Chisholm, director of the new programme.

There is an urgent need to expand the capacity to tackle these problems through well-designed policies and programme interventions. These scholarships will enable three highly-motivated students from developing countries to gain the skills and knowledge to make a real impact on these issues in their professional lives. They are delighted to be able to make this opportunity available to students who otherwise would not be in a financial position to pursue the programme.

Worth of Award

The scholarships include;

  • tuition fees,
  • return airfare to Ireland,
  • and a stipend of €1,000 per month for a year.


To be eligible for the scholarships;

  • Students must first be offered a place on the MSc in Food Security Policy and Management by applying via the PAC portal.
  • Entry requirements for the programme can be found on the programme page.
