South Africa is rich with talent and potential, but because of funding constraints and few opportunities, so much of this potential is never fully realised to the detriment of the socio- economic development of our country.
The Tiso Foundation through its Tertiary Bursary Programme in partnership with various South African Universities seeks to identify deserving previously disadvantaged candidates who have demonstrated talent and determination in their previous academic lives.
So, you have just heard the news – you are about to embark on an exciting journey with one of Africa’s leading science organisations, the CSIR. To realise how important and powerful science is, it helps to imagine a world without it… There would simply be no improvement. The reason that this world does not exist is because organisations like the CSIR are here. Armed with some of the best minds in the world, we work on trying to solve problems that can help all South Africans and make a significant contribution to the global wealth of knowledge.
