The Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund supports education and living expenses of students from the Global South in Master and Postgraduate programmes in communication.
The scholarship fund is coordinated and administered by CAMECO. The screening committee, which awards the scholarships, is currently composed of representatives of the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, missio Aachen, the Institute of Missiology, USCCB Catholic Communication Campaign, and Adveniat.
All candidates must be supported by a Church authority or a religious superior, who is formally the applicant. Candidates cannot submit their own application. Since 2012, thirty-four students received a Cardinal Foley Scholarship, and six more were awarded in 2018.
The fund is named after 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.
The call for applications for 2019/2020 will be announced on this website, towards the end of 2018.
