THE leafy surrounds of Alumni House provided the venue for this year's annual social function sponsored by Lord Sainsbury for Sainsbury Bursary Scheme (or The Linbury Trust) candidates.
The gathering is an important opportunity for students to get to know one another and also to meet with the UCT executive, deans, and, now that the bursary programme includes postgraduate students, their supervisors as well.
There are currently five cohorts of students being supported by Lord and Lady Sainsbury via their trust, The Linbury Trust.
The Sainsbury bursaries began in 1994 and in 1997 he extended the scheme to postgraduate students, with the first of these receiving bursaries in 1998.
