Martha Farrell Fellowships

Theme: Access and inclusion

The Martha Farrell Memorial Fellowship helps drive systemic change– both on campus and beyond.

To date, fellows from ACU member universities across East Africa and Asia have benefited from the Martha Farrell Foundation’s expertise, receiving specialist training and support to combat sexual harassment and in turn boost equity and equality.

Working in partnership with the Martha Farrell Foundation ​highlights our commitment to advancing gender equity across the Commonwealth.  ​


Dr Martha Farrell was 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 Martha Farrell Foundation was set up in her memory to continue her work.
