Faculty strengthen its relationship with schools

08 September 2008

Happy times: Prof Paula Ensor, centre, with Nabilah Johnstone, Inge Salo, Sameer Cloete and Zandile Mnwana, during the launch of a new scholarship initiative in the Faculty of Humanities.

The Faculty of Humanities has launched a scholarship programme that targets disadvantaged learners from schools that are not traditional feeders to UCT.

The aim was to establish a faculty-level relationship with the schools, with a view to attract an increasing number of applicants in future.

The beneficiaries were Nabilah Johnstone of Harold Cressy High, now a BSocSci student; Thandokhulu High's Zandile Mnwana, who is also doing her BSocSci; BA student Inge Salo of Livingstone High; and BSocSci student Charles Sameer of Plumstead High.

The fifth recipient, Hayley Jansen of South Peninsula High School, died in a car accident in April, but the relationship between the faculty and the school continues.
