The South Africa Society for African Science (SASAS) invites Suitable Applicants to apply for Bursary Programme 2022.
The South African Society for Animal Science (SASAS) was formerly known as the South African Society of Animal Production (SASAP). The Society was founded on April 28, 1961. However, the idea of establishing a South African association was conceived some years before that, when the late Wim Verbeek and Danie Joubert (both Ph.D. students at the time) met in a tea room in Petty Cury Lane, Cambridge, on September 21, 1954. With the aid of the late Drs FN Bonsma and Gideon N Louw, the foursome formulated the first objectives and statutes and prepared the way that eventually lead to the foundation meeting.
Bursaries will be awarded for studies towards an Honours or Masters degree in Animal Science / Animal Production.
The value of the bursary will be determined by the council. Funding will be paid in 2 instalments to the recipient, on condition that their SASAS membership is still valid.
