The Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Johannesburg invites applications for postgraduate scholarships from those seeking to be part of a dynamic research programme that is specifically focused on South African art and visual culture. The research envisaged by applicants should be on South African themes (or topics pertinent to South Africa) which fall broadly within at least one of the following three rubrics:

1.  Gender and visual culture
2.  Public art
3.  Art and design in the context of community projects

Scholarships are available to graduates with demonstrable capacities and qualifications in Art History, Visual Art or cognate disciplines.

Study at the PhD level must be thesis-based. Scholarships are worth a minimum of R 100 000 per annum and are available for three years of full-time study.

Degrees at the Master’s level may be either entirely dissertation-based or include a studio or practice-based component. Scholarships are worth a minimum of R 70 000 per annum and are available for two years of full-time study.

Scholarships worth R 40 000 will be awarded to candidates with research ability studying full-time for Honours degrees. A recipient may register in any of the departments in the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture but will be required to produce his/her research essay on a topic fitting within the above rubrics.

Citizenship is not restricted.

Closing date for applications is November 20 2015.
