A notification about a PhD Fellowship programme for Natural or Life Science Students from one of the South Africa Development Community (SADC) countries has been received by the South African Network for Coastal and Oceanic Research (SANCOR).

The Carolina MacGillavry PhD Fellowship is intended to support the completion of a PhD on the basis of a sandwich construction. The 4-year fellowship provides for two stays at a guest university or research institute in the Netherlands, one at the beginning of the fellowship and one at the end. Together, these two periods are expected to last for 1.5 years. In between, the fellow is expected to spend up to 2.5 years carrying out his/her research project in his/her home country. The PhD is to be supervised jointly by a supervisor at the guest institute in the Netherlands and a supervisor at the fellow's home institute.
