SASOG Research Grants

Research funding will be dependent on available funds and allocations will favour registrar’s projects. Funds may be used for expenses such as running costs, laboratory, staff, editing or author’s fees, but capital equipment cannot be funded. An attempt will be made to distribute funds equally between Obstetrics and Gynaecology and between all medical faculties in the country, but selection will be on a competitive basis.

The maximum amount per project will be R30 000 per annum, renewable for at most two years. Grant recipients must acknowledge SASOG in all research outputs and provide Council with either their research output or a project report after 12 months. Recipients will be exempted from registration fees for one SASOG conference in order to communicate results to SASOG members.
