Congratulations to Dr Agatha Banga who has been selected as a Mandela Rhodes Scholar
The Mandela Rhodes Foundation offers young Africans who exhibit academic prowess as well as broader leadership potential an educational opportunity unique on the continent. While pursuing their chosen post-graduate degree, each Scholar benefits from access to leadership development programmes, rooted in the principles underpinning the Foundation.
In addition to the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of fellow-Scholars that spans the continent and academic disciplines, they become part of a wide-ranging network of young Africans of excellence who are expected to play leadership roles in their fields and societies in the years following their time ‘in residence’.
This is a fantastic achievement by one of our hard-working Level 2 students from the 2014 PATS MECOR Programme.
We look forward to hearing all about Agatha's progress and hope that she will be joining us again in 2015 to share her success and encourage her fellow students to achieve their potential.
