Research Capacity Development

GENERAL 

A range of bursaries and scholarships may be accessed by students. Some bursaries are administered by the Department of Research Capacity Development at the Nelson Mandela University, whilst others are administered and managed independently.

Notices and call information regarding bursary/scholarship opportunities are posted on the student and staff portals, on the MEMO (internal communique) as well as RCD's Facebook page: (https://www.facebook.com/ResearchCapacityDevelopment/). 

Notices will contain information regarding who is eligible for a particular scholarship/bursary opportunity, what the closing date will be and how applications may be made. In some instances, the application form and other relevant documentation may be attached.

 

RCD Administered & Managed Bursaries/Scholarships

  • A host of bursaries and scholarships are administered and managed by RCD. These bursaries and scholarships have different sources of funding and therefore different selection criteria.

    See the bursary booklet (under "important documents") for more details.

 

Independent Applications:

These applications (as listed in the scholarship booklet)  should be posted directly to the donor. Students are responsible for making enquiries with the donor regarding the call for applications.
