The C·I·B produces graduates who are sought after for their knowledge, creative and critical thinking and for their expertise in the fields of biodiversity science and invasion biology. We encourage co-supervision and interdisciplinary work and welcome enquiries from academics in this regard.

There are three types of bursary programmes on offer: the general bursary programme, open bursary programme and post-doctoral support. The general bursary programme and the post-doctoral support are provided through our core team members at our partner universties. The open bursary programme is provided to previously disadvantaged, South African students at any of the non-partner universities in South Africa.

For information on how to apply for a bursary please download and view the C·I·B Bursary Information pamphlet.
