In 2020 Dr Moloi-Motsepe, also the Co-Founder and CEO of Motsepe Foundation, co-created the Motsepe Presidential Research Accelerator Fund for Africa. In support of faculty-led and student-driven research projects, the Fund is awarded to researchers engaging in multidisciplinary collaboration between Harvard faculty and Africa-based academics, focusing on advancing key challenges and opportunities facing the continent.

Dr Moloi-Motsepe, who began her term as Chancellor of the University of Cape Town in 2020, has been a longstanding contributor to Harvard University, having served as a council member of Harvard Women’s Leadership Board and the Harvard Kennedy School Center for Public Leadership.

Through various partnerships forged over the years, Dr Moloi-Motsepe has also enabled access to the Harvard Social Innovation + Change Initiative at Harvard Kennedy School for social entrepreneurs.

“We congratulate Dr Moloi-Motsepe for joining this group of global leaders,” reads a statement shared by the Motsepe Foundation Trustees.

“This network, and the opportunity to reinforce global affiliations, will amplify the work of the Motsepe Foundation. This is most applicable to the Motsepe Foundation efforts in education, as we search for innovative pathways to close gaps in accessing quality education and skills that will make Africa’s youth globally competitive.” For media enquiries, contact Roshnee Pillay at roshnee@afi.za.com
