- A local student is flying the SA flag high after she received a scholarship to study abroad
- Anathi Sokhetye left for Hungary, Europe to start her two-year Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship
- She will be pursuing her Master's in Business Development
A young South African lady, Anathi Sokhetye from a small village in the Eastern Cape called Matatiale, has made South Africa very proud after she recently jetted off to Hungary in Europe to pursue her Master's in Business Development. This comes after she received a scholarship.
The scholarship was made possible by combined efforts from both the South African and Hungarian governments. They began the wonderful scholarship programme in 2017; this year, Anathi Sokhetye is the lucky recipient out of 101 other students who had applied to receive the scholarship.
Anathi will be finishing her Master's with the scholarship, which will cover her tuition, accommodation and will also give her a stipend and settling allowance. All her flight costs will also be covered.
“In January 2020, I applied for a scholarship through the Department of Higher Education and Training. I was very excited when I got a call that I was invited to an interview. This meant that my dream of pursuing my Master's overseas was slowly starting to come true.
"Ultimately I was awarded the scholarship and my dream came true. A girl like me, from the dusty streets of Matatiele was jetting off to Hungary to pursue her Master's. My family was very happy for me and celebrated with me,” said Anathi in a DUT article.
