Spirit of 68 Award for Postgraduate Studies at UCT in South Africa
Veterans and Friends of the August 1968 sit-in at UCT have made an annual award available towards
research costs of one or more UCT students. The award supports creative research initiatives by UCT
students investigating innovations which could help to reduce poverty and social exclusion in South
Africa. The title of the award celebrates the spirit of the sit-in, which defended the appointment of Archie
Mafeje to UCT academic staff against the apartheid government’s demand to withdraw the job offer on
grounds of his race.
