KHOISAN LANGUAGE STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME
In order to create a cadre of Khoisan linguists capable of facilitating the
preservation and development of the Khoisan languages of Southern Africa,
Centre for Advanced Study of African Societies (CASAS) administers a
scholarship scheme for University linguistic studies in Cape Town, at the
undergraduate level with possibilities of advancement to post-graduate studies
thereafter. The KLSSS is supported by Brot fur die Welt, Stuttgart, Germany.
The scholarship scheme started with the first cohort in the academic year
starting in January 2002. Scholars are Khoisan mother-tongue speakers, with
good academic achievements to date at Grade 12 or matric level, from any
country in Southern Africa.
