The Klaus-Jürgen Bathe Leadership Programme, launched in November 2014, has been given a shot in the arm worth R7.28-million, thanks to another donation by Prof Klaus-Jürgen Bathe. This brings the funds Bathe has donated to the programme since March last year to R18-million.
The programme – targeted at UCT undergraduate students – is focused on producing graduates with outstanding leadership qualities and a strong sense of social justice, who will go on to play significant roles in business, government, industry and civil society in South Africa and on the African continent.
The additional funds allow the programme to support another twenty students, bringing the total of fully funded undergraduate UCT students to 46 over the short term. The programme will call for applications for the 2016 intake later this year.
