The Department of Afrikaans and Dutch, German and French at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently held an informal function during which recognition was given to recipients of bursaries awarded by the Suid-Afrikaanse Vereniging vir Neerlandistiek (SAVN).

This year the UFS are boasting nine bursary winners, of which six are currently busy with their third-year studies, while the other three students are busy with their honours study. According to Prof. Angelique van Niekerk, a lecturer at the department and representative of the SAVN, the bursaries are sponsored by the Nederlandse Taalunie (NTU).

Students with merit in Afrikaans and Dutch who continue their studies in the subject may apply for the bursaries at the SAVN committee countrywide. – Lize du Plessis
