Honours student in Theology, Mr Francis Bobaikuu from the College of Humanities was recently awarded the Archbishop Denis Hurley Scholarship.

This scholarship allows disadvantaged but academically excellent candidates to read for Honours degrees.

The Archbishop Denis E Hurley Scholarship is provided by the Archbishop Denis E Hurley Educational Trust and is dedicated to academically disadvantaged but excellent candidates to read for Honours degrees. Selected candidates’ study areas, community involvement, leadership qualities and ethical vision must resonate with the life, spirit and accomplishments of the late Archbishop Denis E Hurley who is a former UKZN Chancellor.

The Ghanaian born Bobaikuu said, ‘I am delighted to be awarded this scholarship. It will help me pay for tuition fees, accommodation, food and stationery. Scholarships such as these assist needy but brilliant students to achieve our dreams,’ he said.

Bobaikuu chose UKZN as he believes it is an outstanding university in South Africa and Africa which inspires the youth to achieve their dreams. “My area of study is also highly promoted in UKZN,’ he added.

Asked about his future plans, Bobaikuu said, ‘I plan to pursue my Master’s and PhD degrees. I wish to share knowledge acquired as well as the word and love of God with other people as a trained teacher’.
