GRADUATE BURSARY SCHEME (FUNDED THROUGH NRF)
The National Institute for Theoretical Physics - Bursaries 2013
The National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITheP) offers bursaries on the Honours, Masters and Doctoral levels for students studying in Theoretical Physics. These bursaries are available at ALL South African tertiary institutions.
In cases where there is no formal program in Theoretical Physics, we will endeavour to support graduate projects which qualify as being of a theoretical physics nature by involving co-supervisors from those institutions which do host such programs.
Value and duration of the bursaries are (subject to annual revision)
Honours degree: R40,000 (per annum) for one year full time study
Masters degree: R55,000 (per annum) for maximum two years full time study or R36,666 (per annum) for maximum three years part time study
Doctoral degree: R75,000 (per annum) for maximum three years full time study or R56,250 (per annum) for maximum four years part time study
A call for applications will be sent out at the beginning of September each year and will close at the end of November each year.
