Current Students: PANGeA Doctoral Scholarship Programme

The PANGeA doctoral scholarship programme was launched in 2010 as part of Stellenbosch University’s contribution to the PANGeA network through the establishment of the Graduate School, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

Over 75 candidates, nominated by PANGeA partner institutions, have enrolled in the full-time doctoral scholarship programme since 2010 of which 57 have since graduated and resumed their academic positions at their home institution. A total 83% of PANGeA PhD graduates completed in 3 years or less.
