Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Student Bursary Scheme 2019
The Professional Diploma in Human Rights and Equality is a one-year, part-time programme that has been developed in conjunction with the Institute of Public Administration and is now enrolling for October 2019.
The aim of the Student Bursary Scheme 2019 is to contribute towards building participants’ skills to advance implementation of the Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty in public bodies.
There are ten bursary places available: six are for employees of public bodies and four have been reserved for employees of civil society organisations. Bursary places on the Professional Diploma in Human Rights and Equality are open to people working at all grades and functions. However, preference may be given to applications demonstrating positions of influence to drive the implementation of the Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty (the Duty).
