About The Programme
Since the Fellowship was launched in 2005, over £1.6 million has been generously provided by business donors, and since 2012 the UK Government, in support of the programme. This funding is provided for leadership training; the development of professional networks and supporting industrial experience, together with study opportunities on Master’s programmes in agriculture, food and rural development at the Royal Agricultural University.
Fellows subsequently return to Africa and many are now making significant leadership contributions through their various occupations to managing change in rural development, food supply and security, farming, agribusiness, agricultural education, research and government. The programme is linked to the MSc International Rural Development and the MSc Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security courses.
