FoodBev SETA Bursary 2022 Application Details

FoodBev SETA is inviting public universities to apply for the Postgraduate Research and Innovation Bursary Programme for the 2022 academic year. Bursaries will be awarded for studies towards a Doctorate (PhD) or Master’s degree, related to the Food and Beverages Manufacturing value chain.


The bursary was formed as a response to the research and development requirements of the food and beverages manufacturing sector in the country.



  • You must be a South African citizen, permanent resident or naturalized citizen
  • You must be studying or registered to study towards a PhD or Masters degree qualification
  • Masters students: your research topics must be endorsed by your supervisor and be relevant and responsive to the food and beverages manufacturing value chain
  • PhD students: you must have an approved Research Proposal by the university, with clear timeframes and estimated year of completion (the expected timeframe for completion of PhD is 2 to 5 years from the current academic year for reporting purposes by the SETA)
  • You must be studying at a recognized public university in South Africa
  • You must NOT be receiving any other bursary funding (this must be confirmed by the University Bursary Office)
  • Preference will be given to students from previously disadvantaged groups

The bursary will provide cover for the following expenses:

  • Masters students: registration fees, tuition fees, research costs, and study material, up to a maximum value of R120 000 (for the entire duration of studies), based on the evaluation outcome of the students’ approved research topics. Bursary recipients will also do course work.
  • PhD students: tuition fees, and costs associated with the research undertaken, up to a maximum value of R150 000, for the entire duration of studies, based on the evaluation outcome of the students’ approved research topics.

Bursary recipients will be required to submit a progress report at the end of each academic year, which must be signed off by the supervisor.
