We offer funding through the NRF for research and post-graduate studies that focus on understanding the effects of invasive plants, animals and pathogens on the natural, social or economic environment, and the management of these effects. Bursaries are available for studies at any South African university. The bursary programme, administered through the NRF, provides bursaries to academically strong students at Honours/4th year, Masters and PhD levels. A limited number of bursaries will be awarded to applicants who are not South African citizens or permanent residents, or as stated in individual funding application calls.
