The Martha Farrell Memorial Fellowships equip ACU member university staff with the training and support needed to implement effective anti-sexual harassment initiatives on campus.
Fellows will receive free access to the training programme and follow-up online support from the Martha Farrell Foundation. In addition, each fellow will receive a grant of GBP 1000 to support the implementation of their initiative.
As part of the application, applicants will need to submit a plan of work outlining how their home institution can address the issue of sexual harassment on campus. The training received will offer practical solutions and advice for the development and implementation of the plan.
Applications have now closed.
Dr Martha Farrell was the director of PRIA’s gender programme and campaigned tirelessly for women’s rights, gender equality and adult education. In 2015, while in Afghanistan to lead a gender training workshop, she was among 14 people killed in a Taliban attack. The training is provided by the Martha Farrell Foundation which was set up in Dr Martha Farrell - the director of PRIA’s gender programme - memory.
‘Before my fellowship work, nobody talked about this heinous act openly. Now every stakeholder in the Institute of Education and Research, University of Dhaka, has been concerned about this matter. After the awareness campaign, they know the types and nature of sexual harassment and what they have to do if they face any incidents.’
- Mojibur Rahman, Martha Farrell Fellowship recipient and Associate Professor at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
