As many of you know, beloved friend, colleague and professor Gary Marsden
who worked hard to create opportunities for students to flourish and grow,
tragically passed away just days before his 44th birthday last December.  It
was an enormous loss for all of us ­ for the field to which he gave so much
intellectual leadership and energy, for Africa, and, most especially, for
students.  

In honor the memory of this amazing man, the University of Cape Town has
created the Gary Marsden Memorial Scholarships in ICT4D, to give students
opportunities to study postgrad degrees in ICT4D and to keep his vision
alive.  

There are two scholarships for UCT Honours, Masters and Doctoral students in
ICT4D.

You can find details and can also donate in Gary¹s memory at:

Thank you so much for helping continue Gary¹s legacy.

Best,

‹Susan
