If you meet the minimum entry requirements, and if a potential supervisor is identified and agrees in principle to work with you as supervisor on your dissertation, you will be asked to formally apply for (and in due course register) for the Ph D programme on the university website.Once an offer has been made you are able to register.We may also require you to do additional courses in programme evaluation, research design or statistics.
Applicants must be prepared to complete their dissertations within the period of their fellowship tenure and no later than August 31, 2021. The fellowship may be carried out in residence at the fellow's home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site for the research.
These fellowships may not be held concurrently with any other fellowship or grant.
Therefore, existing data collected outside the ethical rules of UCT cannot be used for a Ph D.
The University of Cape Town is a residential university.
Because most potential supervisors limit the number of Ph D students that they agree to take on annually (in order to ensure the quality of supervision they give to their existing Ph D students), there may not always be a suitable supervisor for your particular topic of proposed research at UCT.
For these reasons, please be aware that the selection process is highly competitive and offers are made to a very limited number of applicants.
Producing a manuscript describing your work on a programme or an existing evaluation report does not fulfil this requirement and would not be accepted as a proposal.
Also note that the university requires ethical clearance for all data collected for research purposes.
ACLS invites applications for Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowships, which support a year of research and writing to help advanced graduate students in the in the last year of Ph D dissertation writing.
The program encourages timely completion of the Ph D. ACLS will award 65 fellowships in this competition for a one-year term beginning between June and September 2020 for the 2020-21 academic year.
