About Agricultural Research Council (ARC)

The Agricultural Research Council (ARC) is a premier science institution that conducts research with partners, develops human capital and foster innovation in support of the agricultural sector. It provides diagnostic, laboratory, analytical, agricultural engineering services, post-harvest technology development, agrochemical evaluation, consultation and advisory services, food processing technology services as well as various surveys and training interventions. Through its wider network of research institutes and experimental farms, the ARC provides a strong scientific base and a broadly distributed technology transfer capacity to the entire agricultural industry in South Africa.

We have partnered with the Agricultural Sector Education & Training Authority (AgriSETA) to offer opportunities for Internships and Bursaries to agricultural science students through our flagship Professional Development Programme (PDP).

Successful students for the PDP will be required to take a 12-month contract renewable based on student performance and covers tuition of Honours, Masters, Doctoral and Postdoctoral studies. Students will be paired with a qualified researcher in a specific agricultural field of specialisation. Internships and Graduate programmes will be paired with a qualified mentor who will give the workplace exposure in their field of qualification.

The ARC seeks to award bursaries to academically deserving students that are currently registered at a Public University or University of Technology in South Africa or who have completed their Doctoral studies in the following fields:
