The first group of four scholars in the Vice-Chancellor’s Prestige Scholars Programme have been placed at universities in the USA. This unique programme identifies and promotes the most promising young academics at the university and guides them towards becoming full professors with superior research accomplishments. This fast-tracking of the next generation of professors involves an intense mentorship programme at the UFS and an international placement with a leading scholar at a top university.
