LISC bursaries awarded
The sought-after Spilhaus and Buyskes bursaries for Library and Information Studies Postgraduate Diploma students have been announced and awarded to two bright and promising young candidates who have demonstrated their passion for libraries and librarianship and their academic aptitude.
Zera Day and Bonga Siyothula were presented with their bursaries (each of which covers their student fees for the year of their PG Dip study) by Head of Department, Associate Professor Jaya Raju.
The bursaries, funded by bequests to the UCT LIbrary School, are awarded every alternate year to deserving students on the basis of need and merit. LISC is pleased to be able to award the funds, and to help in contributing toward this investment in the future of libraries and our ever-changing world of Library and Information services.
We wish our two stars well for their studies and know that they will honour the name and intent of their bursaries.
