Brian O’ Connell Scholarship Programme

The BOC Scholarship Programme encourages capacitation and development through student mobility and research collaboration. The programme aims to provides scholarships to students from a Southern African-Nordic Centre (SANORD) member institution in the Southern African region to spend 3-5 months at a SANORD Nordic member institution for time to work on their research and dissertation. The primary focus will be mobility for academic and research collaboration with our Nordic partners based on scholarly merit.
