The Marine Biology Research Centre is offering a very limited number of postgraduate scholarships for 2011.  The rules for these are as follows:

1- The scholarships are awarded by the UCT Scholarships Committee, on the recommendations of the Director of the MBRC.

2- Only full-time students registered for MSc or PhD degrees within the Marine Biology Research Centre are eligible for support.

3- Awards are made on the basis of a combined evaluation of:

a) The financial needs of the applicant,

b) The academic merits of the applicant, plus

c) The relevance of the research to the aims and objectives of the MBRC.

4- Scholarships may not be held by salaried employees.


Two types of support are offered:

1. Primary bursaries for students who are not eligible for, or have exceeded the time limits of, their normal NRF bursaries.

2. Top up awards, which are intended to supplement NRF bursaries and provide students with a more appropriate income level.


Application forms may be obtained from Gilly Smith in Room 2.34, John Day Zoology Building, or requested from her by email.  Please complete the forms in as much detail as possible.  A CV isnot required but a full declaration of all known or anticipated sources of income for 2011 (including parental support, demonstrating, other bursaries, consulting income, etc) must be included.
