The National Research Foundation's (NRF) rating system is central to its goal of building a globally competitive science system in South Africa. 

B-rated researchers are those who enjoy considerable international recognition by their peers for the high quality and impact of their recent research.

C-rated researchers are regarded as established researchers with a sustained recent record of productivity in their field.

Y-rated researchers are 40 years of age or younger, who have held a doctorate or equivalent qualification for five years at the time of application, and who are recognised as having the potential to establish themselves within a five-year period of the evaluation.

For more information on the NRF ratings, visit the NRF website.
