The University, with generous donor support from various donors, including staff and students, established a fund in her name to honour her memory and celebrate her life, as well as to yearly condemn, by awarding this scholarship/bursary in her name at Graduation, brutal acts of gender-based violence, and senseless acts of violent criminality that rob South Africa of its brightest and best daughters.
