The Klaus-Jürgen Bathe Leadership Programme for UCT undergraduate students is now in its fourth year. Launched in November 2014 by the Vice-Chancellor, it is an initiative aimed at producing graduates with outstanding leadership qualities and a strong sense of social justice, who will go on to play leading and significant roles in business, government, industry and civil society in South Africa and on the African continent.
This UCT Programme is open to undergraduate students from all six Faculties of UCT.
We offer full-board scholarships for a period of 2 years. Selected scholars will receive support intended to cover tuition fees, accommodation and living expenses. They will be expected to take the normal courses of their degree programmes, plus two electives aimed at developing leadership skills. In the second year of the fellowship, scholars will spend 6 weeks attached to approved organisations in South Africa, Germany or the USA, gaining exposure to good leadership practices.
The 2018 Call for Applications is now open.
Deadline: 31 August 2018. No late applications will be accepted.
