The Kovsies students selected for the 2013 programme are: Patricia Mapipi and Sinazo Mabunu from the Faculty of the Humanities; Claudio Carlos and Elzahn van der Westhuizen from the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences; and Stefan van der Westhuizen and Zakariyya Patel from the Faculty of Health Sciences.
