The UCT Research Associateships, awarded annually to "excellent student researchers", have become sought-after funding sources for the university's master's and PhD ranks.
"The purpose of the associateships is to align reward and recognition of the research undertaken by master's and doctoral students, and their supervisors, with the university's strategic objective to be research-led," explained Linda Vranas, director of the Postgraduate Funding Office.
Recently the Postgraduate Centre & Funding Office celebrated the 2011 allotment with the 22 'Research Associates' who will benefit from the award this year.
Seven master's students each received R30 000 towards their research, while 22 doctoral students collected R45 000 each.
