The core business of the Division of Grants and Scholarships Administration (GSAD) is to build health research capacity by providing and administering scholarships to SA citizens studying towards their Masters and PhDs in Medical and Health Sciences. Additionally, health research capacity is augmented by providing funding support to Post-doctoral candidates. Further, GSAD drives the President’s five-year initiative of MRC Research Strengthening and Capacity Development in five selected South African Universities which previously did not have access to adequate resources. All applications for funding are put through a rigorous review process to ensure that the best candidates and or research projects receive funding.
