CHIETA Bursaries 2018, A Bursary Opportunity for Passionate South African Chemists
Since its establishment on 1998, The Chemical Industries Education & Training Authority (CHIETA) has continued its effort to improve on its chemical training qualities through many ways. In order to grow further as a world-class chemist education provider, CHIETA has recently held a bursary programme to fund South African-based young chemistry enthusiasts.
