The former apartheid government founded the historically black institution, located near Cape Town, to serve Coloured South Africans only, but the university embraced a new mission in the 1970s to serve all races and become the intellectual home of progressive forces. The university earned this bonus grant when it met its final-year fundraising goals as part of our South Africa Philanthropy Initiative.
