The Trustees of the Foundation seek to upgrade research at South African universities in the faculties of Science, Engineering and Medical Sciences by making awards to both South African and foreign postdoctoral scientists, who should increase the volume and quality of research output, transfer technical skills, and generally enhance the research culture. Applications must be pre-approved by Rhodes University and then forwarded to the Foundation - take this into account when considering deadlines. See the link above for more information.
