SA-GER CDR: New Scholarship Holders and New Graduates

Britta Niklas reports on new faces and new alumni at the South African-German Centre for Development Research at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town.

6 New Scholarship Holders Commenced their Studies in January 2018

For the 2018 intake, the South African-German Centre for Development Research (SA-GER CDR) received 239 Master applications and 270 PhD applications. For the first time, more students applied for a PhD position than a Master Programme. In August 2017, the selection committee selected 4 Master and 2 PhD students for a Centre scholarship for two years in the case of Master students and 3 years in the case of PhD students. In January 2018, the 6 new scholarship holders commenced their studies at the School of Government and the Institute for Social Development (ISD).
