SACEMA provides research facilities and a stimulating environment in which scientists can interact to transcend disciplinary and institutional boundaries. We support postgraduate degree programmes, ranging from Honours, Masters and PhD, offered at various universities. The focus of the postgraduate studies include mathematics, epidemiology, biostatistics, global health and biochemistry. The core of our research programme consists of four research themes within two broader research areas, i.e. biomarkers, drug targets, and diagnostics; transmission dynamics and interventions.
SACEMA Postgraduate Bursaries for 2022
SACEMA will not be accepting applications directly for any new bursary applications.Scholarships for postgraduate studies are funded by the DSI and administered by the NRF.
To streamline the process for the online NRF application, SACEMA will advertise an “Expression of Interest” call to invite candidates interested in undertaking a Masters degree programme at a South African university to apply to become part of the SACEMA team.
Shortlisted candidates would be:
Aligned with a SACEMA-affiliated supervisor and a project that falls within one of our research themes
Required to apply for funding on the NRF online application system using a unique NRF funding code*
Required to apply to study at the agreed South African university for the duration of the Masters degree
All SACEMA-funded students must work on a research project of direct relevance to SACEMA’s mission and are required to attend the annual Research Days meeting, with the associated costs being covered by SACEMA. As part of the NRF’s funding conditions, all students would be required to submit annual progress reports, signed by their supervisors.
