The Young Scholars programme supports the research careers of promising current and future Master’s-level university students based in South Africa. You are expected to submit a research proposal as a part of your application based on your Master’s thesis research or an independent research project. Your proposal is expected to align thematically with at least one of the SA-TIED work streams. If accepted to the programme, you will work with top academics and policy officials in your field to develop and complete an original research project.
During the course of the programme, you will build a lasting network with local and international experts and officials and your work will become a part of the SA-TIED programme’s body of research on important, policy-relevant topics in inclusive economic development. Finally, your work will be published as a SA-TIED Young Scholars Working Paper, making an important contribution to your growing portfolio.
As you complete your studies, SA-TIED will facilitate your ongoing dialogue with other students, academics, and government officials in South Africa and will provide exposure to the breadth and depth of public sector research and analytical work which is ongoing within government.
