SUCCESSES AND ACHIEVEMENTS of the MIT BURSARY SCHEME
The Meat Industry Trust (MIT) makes funds available on an annual basis for bursaries to meritorious students for post-graduate studies at South African tertiary institution in fields of importance to the Red Meat Industry. The purpose of the bursary scheme is to create further scientific capacity in South African and to address industry research needs.
The MIT administers the scheme via its Bursary Working Committee (BWC), who liaises closely with the tertiary institution and the relevant Head of Department and / or Supervisor under whose guidance the student will conduct the post graduate study (Masters or Doctorate).
