In academia, we usually only engage scholars in our own field or at our own university, so what excites me about this opportunity is the opportunity to meet and interact with scholars from across the country..” Film Lecturer

This two-year fellowship is open to qualified scholars from all South African universities every year. Approximately 30 fellows are in each of three cohorts.

Through this programme, synergies will be fostered that will benefit the fellows once they enter the professoriate, and will also benefit the next generation of South Africans. Film Lecturer
