Mandy Rossouw Scholarship Committee Announces Its First Recipient
In partnership with the Stellenbosch University Alumni Relations Office the Mandy Rossouw Scholarship committee has named S’thembile Cele (22) as the first recipient of the award, reports Kim van der Schyff.
The scholarship was set up in honour of journalist and author Mandy Rossouw, who passed away a year ago at the age of 33.
Cele graduated last year with a BA International Studies and started a BPhil in Journalism this year. Van der Schyff writes that, “The selection committee believe S’thembile, who has already shown so much spirit, talent and ambition has the makings of a great political journalist.”
The Scholarship is fully funded for 2014 and 2015 and you can contact Ms Bev Witten at email@example.com if you are interested in contributing to it.
The Alumni Relations Office in partnership with the Mandy Rossouw Scholarship committee recently announced S’thembile Cele as the first recipient of this prestigious award.
A selection committee for the scholarship comprising of leading editors, journalists and former colleagues of Mandy made the announcement earlier this week.
