About Us

The Nematological Society of Southern Africa (NSSA) is dedicated to advance the science of Nematology in Southern Africa in both its fundamental and applied aspects.

To serve this purpose the Society acts as an agency for the exchange of information, holds regular symposia and promotes and extends knowledge in all phases of the subjects. The NSSA brings together scientists, researchers and like-minded individuals from Africa who dedicate themselves to the study of nematodes. Short courses are also organised when the need arises.

George Martin Memorial scholarship

The George Martin memorial scholarship is awarded annually. The award, to the value of R 4000.00 is open to persons from countries of Southern Africa, i.e. South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Namibia. The purpose of the scholarship is to promote Nematology in Southern Africa, preferably by assisting the successful candidate to attend a recognized course in Nematology. Applicants must be serious about pursuing a career in Nematology and about furthering the science of Nematology. The successful candidate will be expected to give a paper at the next NSSA symposium and/or report in the Society’s newsletter how the funds were used.
