Doctoral fellowship programme
The Doctoral Fellowship Programme is intended for students from South Africa and elsewhere in Africa who would like to pursue doctoral research in public or international law at a South African university. SAIFAC pays the Doctoral Fellows’ university tuition costs, and also provides a modest stipend to allow students to live in Johannesburg for the duration of their research (typically three years). In order to be admitted to the programme, prospective students must write a thesis proposal acceptable to the university at which they are to be enrolled and to SAIFAC. The Director of SAIFAC is available to supervise students whose degree is registered at the University of the Witwatersrand or the University of Pretoria. Depending on the availability of space, Doctoral Fellows may be given office accommodation at SAIFAC, and in any event the use of the SAIFAC common room and research facilities.
If you are interested in participating in this programme, please e-mail SAIFAC on email@example.com.
