The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Vice-Chancellor Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng hosted a luncheon at Glenara on Saturday, 18 February 2023, to welcome the new cohort of the Vice-Chancellor’s Blue Carpet Scholarship recipients.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Blue Carpet Scholarship is awarded to matriculants who have performed extraordinarily in their final National Senior Certificate (NSC) or Independent Examination Board (IEB) examinations and have plans to study towards an undergraduate degree at UCT.

The scholarship is valued at R100 000 per year, covers tuition and residence and is valid for up to three years, subject to the student being named on the dean’s merit list in their specific faculty. The balance of the funds, where applicable, can be used for laptops, books and other study needs.
