HONOURS, MASTER’S, AND PHD SCHOLARSHIPS

The Department of Historical Studies at the University of Cape Town hosts an innovative five-year programme, HISTORY ACCESS, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Aimed at training a new generation of South African historians who are conceptually multilingual, technically competent, and academically rigorous, this programme offers support for students who have proficiency and/ or interest either in working with African vernacular language sources, or in innovative (new media) articulations of original research.

We particularly encourage applications from woman and black (and especially African) South African students.

Email by 30 September 2019 to History.Access@uct.ac.za: A letter of motivation, with a brief description of research; a writing sample; a cv with details of linguistic and (if any) new media skills; full transcripts of academic record.
