About The Farmleigh Fellowship
“The Farmleigh Fellowship aims to develop 1000 Irish based professionals with experience of doing international business across Asia over the next five years and gradually build a critical mass of professionals who will spearhead a greater business, political and cultural engagement between Ireland and this region.”
The Farmleigh Fellowship (www.farmleighfellowship.com) is a unique and innovative Irish scholarship programme which was launched by a small community of Irish business leaders in Singapore in 2010 to equip the next generation of emerging professionals with a world-class ‘toolkit’ for business success in Asia.
The Farmleigh Fellowship was established as a direct response to the formation of the Global Irish Economic Forum (GIEF) by the Irish Government. The GIEF represents a network of Irish business leaders and other influential members of the Diaspora from around the world. The GIEF’s goal is to provide Ireland with a sustainable resource of international expertise from which the Irish community can draw as the country works towards and achieves full economic recovery. (www.globalirishforum.ie).
The Farmleigh Fellowship is a regionalised initiative driven by Irish members of the GIEF who live and work in South East Asia.
The Farmleigh Fellowship is a Singapore-based non-political, not-for-profit organization with a vision to build a world class, prestigious and innovative business educational program, which will promote greater trade, investment and talent development between Ireland and Asia.
