CHED Equity Development Programme
The Equity Development Programme's (EDP) main purpose is to contribute towards a diverse academic staff profile by increasing the pool of people from under-represented groups who are qualified to apply, in competition, for academic staff appointments.
The main programmes are:
- The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Programme
- The Carnegie Undergraduate Scholarship Programme for Women in Science and Engineering
- The Harvard/UCT Mandela Fellowships
- 100UP + programme
As a Vice-Chancellors strategic initiative The 100UP+ (Plus) project aims to bridge the transition from school to university life for those academically gifted 100UP students who have been accepted and are enrolled at UCT.
