MRC Master and Doctoral Scholarship, South Africa

The core business of the Division of Research Capacity Development ( RCD ) is to build health research capacity by providing and administering scholarships to SA citizens studying towards their Masters and PhDs in Medical and Health Sciences. Additionally, health research capacity is augmented by providing funding support to Post-doctoral candidates. Further, RCD drives the President’s five-year initiative of SAMRC Research Strengthening and Capacity Development in selected South African Universities which previously did not have access to adequate resources. All applications for funding are put through a rigorous review process to ensure that the best candidates and or research projects receive funding.
