Staff and postgraduate students from our university attended a training session by Research Professionals Africa (RPA) on the Bloemfontein Campus.

RPA is a collaborative initiative between Research Ltd (UK), the South African Research and Innovation Management Association (SARIMA) and the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). It provides an extensive range of opportunities for funding ranging from institutional grants, travel awards and postgraduate scholarships to scientific fellowships across disciplines.

The session was presented by Refilwe Masiba, Officer at the Office for International Affairs. She explained that RPA acts as a platform which offers researchers the opportunity to seek out available research funding opportunities in Africa and other regions of the world. “This is a platform that is available on all of our three campuses. It is the first of three training sessions which are set to take place here at the main campus,” she said.
