The objective of the PRF Postgraduate Research Scholarships is to provide deserving students with the opportunity to obtain a Masters degree that will enable them to make a contribution to high quality scientific research in the supply or utilisation of protein in animal nutrition, or both. The subject of study for the Masters degree must fall within the broad framework of the mission, vision and goals of the PRF. Doctoral scholarships will also be considered if the subject of study is deemed to be of a high priority to the PRF.

The scholarship is open to citizens of the Republic of South Africa who have qualified for admission to a Masters or PhD degree at a recognised tertiary institution.

The scholarship is awarded on merit, and in the case of a Ph D, according to the requirements of the PRF for the specific study.

The total value of the scholarship will vary according to the length of the study. For the Masters Degree the guideline is two years and for the Doctorate three years. The value of the scholarship is R35 000 per annum. This amount is paid directly to the candidate at the commencement of each academic year, following the receipt of adequate proof that the candidate has been accepted and is registered at the University for the year in question. The allocation of a scholarship in one year should not be regarded as a guarantee that this will be repeated in succeeding years. Scholarship allocations for succeeding years will be paid upon receipt of documentation from the academic supervisor that satisfactory progress was made during the previous academic year, as well as proof of re-registration of the candidate by the university.

CLOSING DATE Completed applications must reach Ms. Erica Van Wyk at the Postgraduate Funding Office, 3rd Level, Otto Beit Building, Upper Campus by 20 September for onward forwarding to the PRF by 30 September. The application form may be downloaded from the following website University of Cape Town / Applying to UCT / Funding
