Description

For Exchange and Study Abroad students from South Africa who would like to come to Leiden University to pursue their studies for 1 semester.

The Mandela Scholarship Fund will be awarded for a maximum of 5 months. On March 12, 1999, his Excellency President Nelson Mandela of South Africa received an Honorary Doctorate from Leiden University, the Netherlands.

On receiving the award the President stated that it brought with it both great responsibility and great honour.

A greater exchange of students will be enriching for both of our nations. On the one hand it will contribute to the development of our country and the rebirth of our continent.

And on the other, we believe contact with the young people of my country will enrich and enlarge the insight that your youth has of your history and I dare say the multi-cultural character of your society.
