Mobility Grant

Mobility grants provide funding support for South African researchers and postgraduate students wanting to visit non-South African universities across the African continent to pursue collaboration with scholars there – whether it be in joint teaching collaborations, new curriculum development, short course attendance, or participation in research networks. The beneficiaries of mobility grants include NIHSS-funded project leaders, postgraduate students registered for either a Masters or PhD/Doctoral study at a public university in South Africa, or non-South African scholars from elsewhere on the African continent invited by a South African scholar. Mobility grants cover a period of between one and three months.
