Dear UCT PhD and Masters Students,
UCT, in partnership with the University of Montpellier, is offering access to a database of international PhD funding opportunities via the YEBO! Project. The YEBO! Project is a capacity-building project on the internationalisation of doctoral studies in South Africa. It was launched in 2017 and will end in November 2020, with the aim to:
- achieve the improvement of the skills of South-African universities concerning the internationalization of PhD Studies;
- facilitate access to information concerning funding, mobility, and administrative procedures of PhD programs;
- increase PhD students and staff trained in the internationalization of the PhD studies;
- promote the internationalization of PhD studies in South Africa and Europe.
UCT has 1,000 licences available to the YEBO! Project platform called Open4Research. These will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, so if you are interested, we encourage you to register as soon as possible. To do so, click on OPEN4YEBO and complete the required fields to secure your licence and access the database of funding opportunities. Please note – you must use your “myuct” or “uct” email address domain to register. Should you have any questions regarding the registration process, you are welcome to contact Amanda Bessick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NB: Enquiries regarding individual funding opportunities available on the Open4Research platform must be directed to the appropriate contact person/people listed under that specific opportunity.
