CAMECO’s Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund is accepting application until 7th March 2023

CAMECO’s Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund is accepting application for the funding cycle 2023/2024 until 7th March 2023.

The scholarship fund addresses the need for adequate professional formation for those who will be responsible for the future development of the Church’s mission in the field of communication. 

It supports education and living expenses of students from the Global South in Master and Postgraduate programmes in communication.

The objectives of the Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund are to qualify Africans, Asians and Latin Americans who will have the capacity to provide proper formation for future Church communicators in local training institutes, communication (and theology) faculties and major seminaries, and, broaden the base of qualified priests, deacons, religious and lay people who are competent to further develop the communication ministry of the local churches. The fund especially supports the development of potential future national or regional communication coordinators.

Eligible for a scholarship are priests, religious, permanent deacons and lay people, men and women, supported by their bishop and/or religious superior, and with a proven capacity (including practical experience) and interest in working in communications. The application needs to be presented by the respective Church authority. Applications sent by candidates themselves cannot be considered.

Graduate and postgraduate programmes in (pastoral) communications are the type of studies that will be supported – both in southern continents and in Europe/North America. However, applicants are encouraged to seek adequate and relevant study opportunities close to home, and half of the scholarships are foreseen for post-graduate courses at universities in Africa, Asia/Oceania or Latin America. Basic training (undergraduate studies) in communications cannot be supported and needs to be completed in the region of origin before submission of an application.

The scholarship fund is coordinated and administered by CAMECO. The screening committee is currently composed of representatives of the Dicastery for Communications, missio AachenInstitute of Missiology, USCCB Catholic Communication CampaignAdveniat, Renovabis.

The fund is named in memory of Cardinal John Patrick Foley, former president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, honouring his enduring commitment to building the Church’s competence in her communication involvement.
