Lifetime Achievement Award from the NRF

Posted on October 06, 2016

One of the most prestigious awards presented by the NRF each year is the NRF Lifetime Achievement Award, which is given to individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the development of scholarship in and for South Africa over an extended period of time. It also recognizes the manner in which their work has touched and shaped the lives and views of many South Africans.

This year, this prestigious accolade was bestowed on Professor Chabani Manganyi, a research fellow in the Centre for the Advancement of Scholarship at the University of Pretoria (UP). Prof Manganyi is a prominent writer who has had a distinguished career in psychology, education and government, and having been director-general of the Department of Education in the Mandela government, then serving for a number of years on the UP executive.
