This is my fourth and final update to stakeholders for 2017 as The Mandela Rhodes Foundation prepares to close off on another exceptionally productive 12 month period and readies itself for 2018, the seminal year of the Centenary of our Patron’s birth as well as the year of our own 15th anniversary.
Most Mandela Rhodes Scholars find the Scholarship to be a life-changing experience. Watch this video to hear from past Scholars:
The MRF remembers with joy and deep appreciation the countless hours spent by Kathy in selecting Mandela Rhodes Scholars for more than a decade, and addressing their workshops. Just one more quiet contribution to his beloved continent by this humble giant.
Rest in peace, Kathy.
Shaun and the MRF team
It gives me enormous pleasure to announce the appointment of Mandela Rhodes Scholar Coralie Valentyn (South Africa & University of the Western Cape, 2014 – biography attached) to the position of Programme Associate in the Foundation’s scholarships team.
UPDATE FROM THE MANDELA RHODES FOUNDATION: JANUARY 2017
The MRF year is already in full swing with the MRF team making final preparations for the arrival of the Class of 2017 in Cape Town for their Introductory Workshop. But there is an even more excited and celebratory mood than usual in the Mandela Rhodes Building, with the announcement of an important new appointment at the Foundation.
