Postgraduate Funding

The DSI-NRF South African Research Chair in Industrial Development (SARChI-ID), hosted at the College of Business and Economics, offers nominations for National Research Foundation (NRF) bursaries for economics Masters and PhD students who will be registered at the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Bursary holders join a prestigious and dynamic research community at SARChI-ID, which is led by Prof Fiona Tregenna.

Applications open once a year for high-achieving and motivated students, whose research is in or linked to the broad field of industrial development, to be nominated for these bursaries. Bursaries cover fees, accommodation and include an electronic device allowance. Additional funding is available from SARChI-ID for research expenses, travel to national and international conferences, and training courses, awarded on a case-by-case basis. Students are also provided with office facilities. Masters bursaries cover up to two years of study, PhD bursaries cover up to three years of study.
