DSI-NRF Postgraduate Student Funding 2023 for South Africans; For the academic year 2023, the DSI and NRF are happy to announce a call for new applications for DSI-NRF Postgraduate Student Funding. A Progress Report, not a new application, is required of all continuing students who are qualified for a second or third year of financing.

  • The NRF minimum academic requirement for postgraduate funding is 65%. The entry age requirement is 28, 30 and 32 years or younger for honours, master’s and doctoral studies respectively, in the year of application, regardless of first year of registration.
  • Successful applicants will be funded either at Full Cost of Study (FCS) or Partial Cost of Study (PCS).
