Vice-Chancellor Scholarship Fund
The Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Johannesburg (UJ), Professor Tshilidzi Marwala, launched the Tshianeo Marwala Scholarship in honour of his grandmother, Tshianeo Marwala in 2019.
The Tshianeo Marwala Scholarship is for women from underprivileged backgrounds, who are pursuing studies with focus on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) at postgraduate level.
According to Prof Marwala the aim of the Tshianeo Marwala Scholarship is to grow the number of women from rural areas in the engineering area. At the launch event of the scholarship Prof Marwala said "Being a woman engineer is different from being a male in the industry. Not better, not worse, but different". South African women have made many advances in industry in recent years, but much more work needs to be done to attract and retain women, particularly in areas such as engineering. The search for qualified and talented engineers remains one of the greatest challenges faced by companies across the globe. An even greater difficulty is in attracting and retaining women engineers who comprise of a small percent of the available workforce in the sector. It's important that women are visible in all areas of study, especially as we embrace 4IR."
