Deadlines extended for two diversity initiatives
Deadlines for the Creating Welcoming Communities workshops and the Jeffery Scholarship have been extended.
The Creating Welcoming Communities – Engagement with Migrants, Asylum seekers, Refugees in Northern Ireland initiative is a pilot Participatory Action Research (PAR) project supported by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRTC), and run by Queen's staff from the Exclusion Amid Inclusion project.
The team aims to work with 6-8 representatives from different community based organisations in Northern Ireland that provide services to migrants, asylum seekers and refugees communities. The initiative is to deliver bespoke workshops to communicate key organisational skills that are key to the successful obtaining and implementation of funding projects.
The deadline for applications, originally falling in June, has been extended until 7 July.
The Keith Jeffery Memorial MA Scholarship is for a history student from a Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic “BAME” background.
The award is made in honour of the late Professor Keith Jeffery, who published outstanding work on the history of imperialism, among other areas.
The scholarship will cover PGT fees for one year at NI or UK student level, and applicants are asked to submit a proposal for a Master's on some aspect of imperialism, post-imperialism, race or slavery in any of the geographical areas or historical periods in which Queen's historians work.
