The Graduate School of Economics and Management Sciences (GEM) at Stellenbosch University is offering a Ph.D. scholarship program to students from all over the world. The objectives of the Graduate School are to:

  • Greatly increase the Faculty's number of Ph.D. graduates.
  • Broaden access to the doctoral education in economic and management sciences, and
  • Continuously develop and provide effective support structures for Ph.D. studies within the Faculty.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The candidate must hold a master's degree in a relevant discipline or, in exceptional circumstances, an equivalent qualification.
  • Candidates must have achieved a grade of 65% in their master's programs.
  • Candidates must be under forty years of age when the program commences in January 2021.
  • Only applications in one of the Faculty's Research Themes will be considered.
  • All students who meet the above criteria will be considered.

Scholarship Value:

Successful students are awarded a substantial scholarship (R138 000 p.a. About $ 8,000) for a period of three years.


New participants enter the program in January as part of a cohort, which forms a supportive, scholarly unit for the remainder of their studies. To ensure a maximal likelihood of students completing their doctoral studies within three years, the following supportive measures are put in place:

  • In the first year of study, students take part in a partially structured program that provides the skills required to undertake doctoral research. This is achieved by providing students with supplementary support in the form of workshopsand courses, targeted to ensure the generic skills required to do a Ph.D. is in place.
  • Possible skills gaps at the individual level are proactively identified and addressed in collaboration with the Graduate School candidates.
  • Aside from financial support, full-time PhDs are provided with infrastructural support, in the form of laptops and seating within the faculty.
  • In addition, the progression of projects is actively monitored, through a series of progress reports, in collaboration with the responsible study leaders.
