Local Study Grants
The Ernest Oppenheimer Memorial Trust awards a limited number of grants each year at doctoral level for local study for individuals who are teaching at academic institutions and intend to pursue an academic career but do not have sufficient funding to successfully complete their studies. It does not provide assistance for undergraduate, honours and Masters study nor does it consider applications for study towards professional qualifications such as MBAs. Preference is given to doctoral candidates with a proven record of academic excellence coupled with financial need.
