The Research Council of Zimbabwe (RCZ) is offering scholarships to support MPhil, taught or Masters by research degree programmes in line with the National Research Priorities (NRPs). Zimbabwe considers human capital investment via education a major tool for sustainable development and for the attainment of Vision 2030. According to the 2018 National Critical Skills Audit Report by the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development (MHTEISTD), Zimbabwe has a critical skills deficit in Engineering and Technology, Natural and Applied Sciences, Medical and Health Sciences and this needs focused planning to increase enrolments in these areas. The aim of the scholarship programme is to reward high-achieving students and to invest in human capital development in these areas. RCZ anticipates that the beneficiaries from the 2020 Scholarship Programme will be absorbed into Zimbabwe’s workforce by 2022.
The scholarship covers tuition fees up to ZWL30 000.
Be a national and resident of Zimbabwe.
Be in possession of a good first degree (minimum second class).
Be applying for a full-time taught masters or masters by research or MPhil in Engineering and Technology, Natural and Applied Sciences, and Health Sciences at public Zimbabwean universities.
