Funding Opportunities

For MSc and PhD studies, a good first option is to apply for an NRF freestanding scholarship which is open to both South African and international students. Deadlines are around mid-year and it is competitive so you will need to dedicate some time to a winning application. For more information, please see the NRF web site, which has all the information you will need. If you are interested in applying, please let us know so that we can assist you.

In addition to general funding we may have (which you need to ask us about), we tend to have some funding available for specific projects, should you not succeed at winning an NRF scholarship. We are happy to discuss this with prospective students and post-docs. We may advertise specific positions below, but please reach out to us as we don't always list everything on this page.
