What is TISO Foundation Archibald Mafeje PhD Scholarship?
The Archibald Mafeje PhD Scholarship was born out of the need to promote doctoral studies in the country. Due to low participation rates, coupled with poor completion rates at Masters and Doctoral levels, and insufficient funding of post-doctoral studies the Foundation established the Archibald Mafeje PhD Scholarship in 2014.

The Scholarship was established in honour of the late Professor Mafeje who was an influential academic, who was denied access to various Professorships under the apartheid regime. This PhD Scholarship aims to honour his academic legacy as well as his ideals of democracy.
This programme aims to facilitate the growth of strong academic minds and increase the number and quality of black doctoral graduates, through the awarding of two doctoral scholarships, in South Africa annually.
