Author and physician Dr T Lee Baumann recently received the gold pin which marks his entry into the Chancellor's Circle from UCT Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price.
The pin was in acknowledgement of Baumann's donation of R800 000 for the establishment of the God at the Speed of Light scholarship for African students studying at UCT.
"I fell in love with the South African people and wanted to give back. I am a big believer in education," says Baumann, who stayed in Rondebosch for a short work stint in 2012. He has established 32 God at the Speed of Light scholarships at various institutions in America and now in South Africa.
Baumann is the author of God at the Speed of Light and many other books on spirituality and quantum physics. He says he looks forward to visiting UCT in the near future to meet the scholarship recipients.
Donors who have given R250 000 or more to the University are acknowledged in this way.
