The University of Cape Town (UCT) is looking for undergraduates to apply for the 2017 Klaus-Jürgen Bathe Leadership Programme.

This prestigious scholarship programme is in its fourth year and is available at the university to any eligible undergraduate student.

The Klaus-Jürgen Bathe Leadership Programme was established at UCT in March 2014, through a donation by Prof. Klaus-Jürgen Bathe from Massachusetts in America, who is also an alumnus of UCT.

The fund is headed by the programme director, Prof. Alphose Zingoni.

This important scholarship comes at a time when the funding landscape for higher education in the country is regarded as being under immense pressure.

So far, 26 outstanding young leaders who are completing their studies in medicine, engineering, humanities, sciences, finance and law, have been supported through the programme.

The primary goal of the programme is to produce graduates with outstanding leadership qualities and a strong sense of social justice, who will play leading and significant roles in business, government, industry and civil society in South Africa and on the African continent.

  • Through an application process, top learners are selected to receive two years funding for undergraduate studies, leadership courses and a six-week internship at leading South African companies, non-governmental organisations and government departments. Prospective learners can get the form at www. kjbatheleadership.uct.ac.za.

This is placed on the website in May or June.
