Financial support from the IWBT
The IWBT may, at its discretion and subject to sufficient funding being available per project, award financial support to full-time registered students, if they have not been awarded any other external bursaries.
Below is the figures of 2019. It may change from year to year.
Honours - up to R40 000 per annum (for 1 year)
Masters - up to R95 000 per annum (for 2 years)
Doctoral - up to R120 000 per annum (for 3 years)`
Bursaries are awarded in terms of the regulations of Stellenbosch University. In exceptional cases the IWBT retains the right to make adjustments to bursary supplementations depending on the total value of the bursaries awarded, as well as the performance of the student.
