Internal bursary applications for 2018: Deadline 30 June 2017

SACEMA invites applications for bursaries to study towards Masters or PhD degrees, based at and supervised through SACEMA, in fields relating to epidemiological modelling and biostatistics.

Note: There is another link to the application process for External Bursary applicants. If you intend to be based at another university in South Africa, with a supervisor there, you should click on the other link.

Internal bursary holders are registered at the University of Stellenbosch, but the department of registration will depend on the applicant's background and the main thrust of the intended research. For example, SACEMA students have been registered in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, and Department of Global Health Sciences.  In addition to any resources offered by the registering department, Masters and PhD students will have access to a desk in SACEMA, and full participation in the activities of the centre is expected. SACEMA's stimulating research environment includes regular group discussions, research seminars, and workshops. Relevant coursework will be recommended by SACEMA in consultation with supervisor(s) and satisfying the requirements of the registering department.

Please complete the Internal Bursary application form for Masters or PhD (links below) and send supporting documents according to the instructions, as well as commission an academic referee's support letter, all to be received by the closing date for applications: Friday 30 June 2017.
