Applications open for the Konstantin Sofianos Scholarship

22 Oct 2019 - 12:15

The Konstantin Sofianos Scholarship invites you to apply for our annual scholarship.

Scholarship applications are open to all students who have been accepted to the University of Cape Town’s English department for the Honours programme in 2020.

The scholarship amount currently stands at R28,000 (ZAR). Selection of the scholarship winner is decided on the strength of a literary essay written by applicants – and not on the basis of other determiners, like prior academic record or financial background.

You can access the guidelines for applying, as well as this year’s essay topic online, at .

Please note: The closing date for submissions is 24 January 2020. Please allow yourself enough time for reading and preparing your essay.
