Faculty Research Funding

The Faculty Research Office is responsible for the administration of several research funds. Some of these funds exist due to the generosity of alumni and donors who have established Trusts or Endowment Funds. Other funds are made available by the Faculty and the University. Members of the Faculty Research Committee play a vital role in reviewing funding applications submitted by Health Sciences staff and students.

Postgraduate students and staff members are also encouraged to make use of RESEARCHConnect (https://search.researchconnect.eu) which is a search tool used to source funding. Click here to view the user guide. Should you need login details and training contact Nomfundo.sibiya@wits.ac.za
