‌ANN BROWNE, was born October 18, 1949 in Strabane, Northern Ireland, and died of cancer on January 29, 2000.

She read Spanish at Queen’s University Belfast and took an MA at London’s Insti-tute of Latin American Studies, before visiting Latin America in the 1970s. She was inspired by Latin American Literature and the Northern Ireland civil rights movements. She fought for the rights of Latin American miners, was a Trade Unionist, and supported Chilean refugees. She moved to Brus-sels, where she died in 2000.

To honour her memory and spirit the Browne family set up the MA scholarship, granted annually to an outstanding applicant of the GRI Masters Pro-gramme. Last year, Aylisha Hogan was awarded the Ann Browne Scholarship.
