Part-time postgraduate fellowship programme
This programme allows part-time students from formerly disadvantaged groups in South Africa to complete a post-graduate degree in law. The value of the fellowship matches the successful applicant’s existing salary, and is paid either to the applicant’s employer (in the event that the employer finds a part-time replacement for the Research Fellow) or directly to the Research Fellow (in the event that he or she takes unpaid leave). The programme is open to South Africans:
a) who are already in full-time employment as a legal academic in South Africa and who intend to register for a PhD or a masters degree by research at a South African university;
b) who have already registered for a PhD or masters degree in law at a South African university but who need financial assistance to complete their degree; or
c) who are already in full-time employment as a legal academic in South Africa and are preparing a doctoral proposal for registration overseas.
If you are interested in participating in this programme, please e-mail SAIFAC on email@example.com.
