External bursary applications

External bursary applications for 2019: Deadline 31 July 2018

SACEMA invites applications for bursaries to study towards PhD degrees, registered at any South African university and supervised by an approved supervisor, in fields relating to epidemiological modelling and biostatistics. Priority will be given to applicants demonstrating high motivation with projects closely aligned to SACEMA’s mission and goals.

Note: This is distinct from the application process for SACEMA Internal Bursary applicants, for which there is another link, Internal Bursary Applications with deadline 30 June 2018. If you have bursary funding from the NRF or another government source, you are not eligible to apply for a SACEMA bursary.

Please complete the application form and upload supporting documents according to the instructions. Both links are below. In addition you are required to commission an academic referee’s support letter, to be sent directly to SACEMA by the referee, by the closing date for applications: Tuesday 31 July 2018.
