Cambridge University hounours Nick Koster through a substantial academic Award.

ODs who are interested and qualify can apply for the award to study a Masters in Social Innovation offered by the University of Cambridge.

Mrs Soussan Shahriari from the University of Cambridge has informed us that the University has named an internal studentship after Nicholas Koster (2007:F).  There can be no more wonderful and fitting way to keep Nick's legacy alive.

According to Soussan, Nicholas made such a huge impact at Cambridge that they want to keep that going. The studentship is open to those who are living, working or resident of, or have citizenship in South Africa. 

We have been requested to let ODs know that Cambridge is offering this opportunity. 

In this way, it will be made possible to continue on the work Nick was doing and keep his memory alive. 

Here is the link:

Please direct any questions to us or direct to Mrs Soussan Shahriari
