Sanctuary Fellowship Scheme

14 Apr 2022

In response to conflicts across the world, UCC today announces that it has created a Sanctuary Fellowship Scheme.

Through this scheme scholars and staff members from universities, and other third level institutes outside of Ireland, who are at risk as a result of conflict or other serious human rights violations can apply for a six month fellowship in UCC. It is the first fellowship of its kind in Ireland’s higher education sector.

Under the fellowship UCC will provide 6 fellows a support package including a start-up grant and a monthly salary for six months. Each fellow will also be linked to a UCC mentor who will act as a focal point to provide social and professional support on a peer-to-peer basis.
