Post: Paper industry association ups its Master of Chemical Engineering bursary to R320 000

Every year, the PAMSA Master in Chemical Engineering bursary programme accepts applications from Bachelor of Science chemical engineering final-year students or graduates. A limited number of students will have the opportunity to complete their master’s studies at participating universities by way of a R320 000 bursary over two years.

Johannesburg, May 12, 2022 – The Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) has announced that its bursary and research programme is now open for applications for the 2023/2024 intake. The programme, which offers R320 000 per student over two years, provides a limited number of eligible Bachelor of Science (Chemical Engineering) final year students and graduates with the opportunity to study towards a Master of Chemical Engineering degree.

The development of industry-focused research and innovation is core to PAMSA’s mandate, to help improve pulp and paper mill efficiency, reduce the sector’s water and carbon footprint, and maximise the use of raw material and process waste, while also providing education and employment opportunities for bright, young graduates.

“Trees are sustainably planted, grown and harvested in South Africa and they provide us with countless products that we use every day, from notebooks and newspaper to toilet paper and paper bags,” says Samantha Choles, communications manager for PAMSA. “The goal of a circular economy is pushing our industry to use as much as of its raw material as possible. This includes wood fibre, water, chemicals, recycled paper and making process waste into biochemicals or biofuels.”

Visit www.thepaperstory.co.za/apply for more information on the programme and the link to the application form.

Terms, conditions and qualifying criteria apply. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2021
