About UFS Research Master’s and Doctoral Bursaries

The UFS provides funding to students in need of financial assistance. The office also informs and updates postgraduate students in case there are any available international and national scholarship and bursary opportunities. For the Academic Year 2021, the University of the Free State will provide financial assistance in the form of partial tuition fees to Doctoral and Research Masters’s students. This is a once-off opportunity for interested and qualified students.
