SAAB: Student Bursaries 2021

Each year the South African Association of Botanists awards SAAB Scholarships / Bursaries, to SADEC graduates with 70% or above grade average. In 2021, three awards of R12 000 for 1 year of tertiary study at Honours level (or 4th year level of study) in any Botanically related science will be granted to three registered students, on a competitive basis. 


In addition, the SAAB Council also awards one MSc scholarship worth R40 000.  Successful applicants will receive R20 000 the first year and an additional R20 000 the following year if satisfactory progress is made in the first year. 


Fields of study:

  • Must be studying towards a botanically related science qualification

Please note: 

Due to delayed academic programmes at many universities we have decided to extend the closing date for the Honours bursary to allow students time to engage with prospective Supervisors and available projects. Therefore, the Honours bursary closing date has been moved to 26 March 2021.
