We wish to draw to your attention a wonderful postgraduate funding opportunity to further your studies at Stellenbosch University. Online applications for the Stellenbosch University Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is now open. Stellenbosch University aims to become Africa's leading research-intensive university, globally recognised as excellent, inclusive and innovative, where we advance knowledge in service of society. ​Full and Partial Scholarships are available based on criteria set per faculty. International students may also apply. All scholarship awards will be made on condition that the applicant meets all of the requirements of the scholarship as well as the admission requirements of the relevant degree programme. Applicants are advised that the University may require additional information, over and above the information supplied in the application, in order to reach a decision about the suitability of any candidate for the award of a scholarship.

The University also retains the right to award, or not to award, scholarships to any persons who meet the eligibility, award, and/or preference criteria. Students who receive the maximum scholarship value may not receive additional/supplemental funding. 

Please consider your application as unsuccessful should you not receive feedback within three (3) months after the closing date.
