Thanks to your generous support in the past sponsoring me to study and achieve my first Degree, I managed to find a good job and move my family out of slums into a good house. We found a good school for my daughters. We have been able to buy a plot of land whereby in years to come I will build my house.
After successfully completing my master’s degree, I submitted my application for a PhD scholarship at Maynooth University in Ireland. By God’s grace my application was short-listed for interviews. I attended the Zoom interviews in May 2021 organized by three Professors from Maynooth University.
The result of these interviews is that I have been offered a scholarship to study PhD in Health Psychology at Maynooth University in Ireland.
The scholarship includes a tax-free stipend of 18,500 Euro per annum for four years and annual tuition fee contribution of 5,500 Euro from Science Foundation Ireland via the Centre for Research Training in Advanced Networks for Sustainable Societies. Maynooth University will cover the remainder of the tuition fees starting in September 2021 (I will provide copies of the offer letter & confirmation letter upon request to encourage your support of my progress). Currently, I am gathering all the necessary documents so that I can submit my application for a student visa.
The university policy is that they will pay to me a stipend once I have obtained an Irish address and PPS number in Ireland which sometimes can take a few weeks to process. Therefore, for me to travel to Ireland I will need to have funds for flight ticket, food and lodging close to Maynooth University for a few weeks.
Due to Covid -19 restrictions, our organizations stopped all field work activities until further notice, and we are not working and now it is hard for me to raise funds for flight ticket from Lilongwe - Malawi to Dublin - Ireland. Therefore, kindly I will need your support to help me to raise funds for my flight ticket, accommodation for a month and food for upto three weeks.
Many thanks for your support, kindness and everything.
