For many young South Africans, getting a tertiary education is only a wish. For 24 first year Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) students who were awarded the prestigious Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship on Friday night, this wish has become a reality.

The 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Scholars bagged the R89 000 a year scholarship – up 8% on last year’s R82 782 in line with the fee increase – based on their excellent academic achievements in high school. The scholarship, awarded during an intimate function at the North Campus Conference Centre, is renewable for each year of the scholars’ undergraduate studies, provided they maintain the levels of high academic achievement.
