MFF-NAPSWI Scholarships

In collaboration with the National Association of Professional Social Workers in India (NAPSWI), the Foundation offers scholarships to support field research in the core areas of the Foundation’s work.

For successful candidates, the outcome of the field research will be published on the Martha Farrell Foundation and NAPSWI websites.



The purpose of this year’s scholarship is to encourage research on issues that emerge due to implementation and/or lack of the recently enacted Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.

  • Dr. Martha Farrell International Scholarship for Global Leaders

In honour of Dr Martha Farrell, who taught in their Master of Arts in Global Leadership Program (MAGL), Royal Roads University, Canada will launch the Dr Martha Farrell International Scholarship for Global Leaders. This scholarship is designed to support students who have demonstrated global leadership through outstanding contribution to their communities, and who are committed to making a further contribution but would be unable to participate in the MAGL program without significant financial assistance.

The scholarship will enhance global leadership in three inter-connected ways:

  • Two students annually will be equipped as global leaders
  • The communities of these students will be enhanced through their global leadership
  • Other cohort members will become better global leaders as the program quality is increased, and RRU itself will be heightened by the inclusion of these students
