Register of Grants

The NRF Register of Grants provides information to all NRF stakeholders on grants.

The NRF distributes a large portion of its funding budgets to researchers via, amongst others, research grants, infrastructure grants, travel grants, and scholarships and fellowships on an annual basis. Grants include funding initiatives that are awarded by the organisation as well as those that are administered by the NRF on behalf of the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), and other entities. This contributes to the Government’s objectives of meeting sustainable human capital development and promotion of a greater investment in innovation and research development.

The NRF Register of Grants provides information to all NRF stakeholders on the grants that have been claimed by researchers for the respective funding years, after being awarded grants by the NRF’s Research and Innovation Support and Advancement (RISA) unit. The Register of Grants excludes all bursaries, scolarships and fellowships. These grants will be available in the first quarter of 2021, with the Register of Students.
