Mellon scholar, Njica Siyabonga, is delighted at being awarded the esteemed Gates Cambridge scholarship to do his PhD at the University of Cambridge starting in October.  He says:  "It would not have been possible without the exposure, community and experience of the Mellon Program."

Siyabonga will join 91 Scholarship programme recipients from around the globe at Cambridge in October, where he will read for a PhD in HIstory at Darwin College. 

The announcement of the class of 2018 on the University of Cambridge's website said the Scholarship also selects "those with a proven interest in improving the lives of others by helping address the numerous challenges we face locally, regionally and globally."  

CHED congratulates and wishes Njica great success in reading his PhD.
