SAAFoST Brian Koeppen Memorial Scholarship 2020

The South African Association for Food Science and Technology, or SAAFoST, is now inviting qualified individuals who are interested in receiving bursary support through its Brian Koeppen Memorial Scholarship Programme for the 2020 academic year.

SAAFoST is a non-profit, national organization that is largely overseen by volunteers and technical professionals working together in an effort to advance food science and technology. This is primarily achieved through its membership-based magazine publication entitled Food Science and Technology. The magazine promotes the publication of articles and papers, scientific research, seminars, organized meetings, exhibitions, workshops and educational services assistance to name a few. One of its most important educational initiatives is the SAAFoST Bursary Programmes.

The scholarship programme was established in honor of the late Prof. Brian H. Koeppen, department head of the Department of Food and Science. Bursary support is available to postgraduate students which include both master’s and doctorate degree programmes. The bursary support amounts to R35 000 per year and can only be used to cover tuition fees.

However, bursars who also beneficiaries of other programmes that cover all or part of the tuition fees will have the Koeppen scholarship take care of the study materials, academic seminars, research and study visits.
