Closing date: 13 August 2024

RATT invites applicants for postgraduate scholarships commencing in 2025. We have a mix of science-oriented and techniques-oriented projects – some may fall into both categories, depending on scope. Note that a number of our projects are also eligible for funding via SARAO freestanding bursaries, these are marked by “(SARAO)” below, and the project text includes a link to a more detailed project description on the SARAO website. The funding levels and the application process are the same for all categories of funding:

1. Carefully read the NRF guidelines to make sure you are eligible for funding. Note that RATT and SARAO scholarships are only available to citizens of South Africa and SKA Africa partner countries.

2. (Applicants from partner countries: please check your equivalent SAQA NQF level. Rhodes normally requires NQF 8 for MSc applicants, and NQF 9 for PhD applicants, although exceptions may be motivated for if substantial additional research experience can be demonstrated.)

3. Make e-mail contact with the listed project supervisor(s) and obtain their approval. Please write an e-mail motivation (it may be informal) and include a detailed CV and all academic transcripts.

4. Once you have the approval, proceed to apply via the NRF Connect portal, selecting “SARAO Doctoral” or “SARAO Masters” as the application category.

5. E-mail your supervisor(s) with your application reference number.

The Rhodes internal closing date for applications is 13 August 2024, but please allow yourself ample time for the application process.
