The Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences has enrolled 21 candidates for the full-time doctoral scholarship programme in 2014. These 21 students hail from 7 sub-Saharan African countries, including South Africa, and are registered across 11 departments within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. More than half (57%) of the 2014 cohort are female, whilst 48% are staff members within the PANGeA network. Click here to meet the new cohort of students.

The Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences was established as a HOPE Project initiative to strengthen and advance doctoral training and scholarship on the African continent by: (1) offering partially structured doctoral programmes in the arts, humanities and social sciences; (2) addressing problems relevant to Africa’s development in multi-disciplinary research themes (with a specific focus on the international development themes); (3) making available three-year, full-time, residential scholarships; (4) providing broad-based research and scholarship support through weekly seminars, workshops, colloquia and short courses; and (5) enhancing academic collaboration and mobility in partnership with leading African universities through the Partnership for Africa's Next Generation of Academics (PANGeA).

A total of 109 candidates from 14 sub-Saharan African countries have been enrolled in this doctoral scholarship programme since 2010, an average intake of 22 candidates per annum. To date, the programme has produced 40 doctoral graduates; 19 in 2012 and 21 in 2013.
