Special International Emphasis: South Africa The main goal of the Foundation's higher education in South Africa is to develop capacity in higher education by providing opportunities for individuals who were previously disadvanted and individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the previously disadvantaged. The Foundation has supported fellowships for honors, Masters and PhD students; underwritten academic posts for three years in order to increase faculty diversity; supported USHEPiA, a fellowships program to strengthen universities in sub-Saharan Africa; supported research in key areas in the humanities and social sciences; and promoted the strengthening of the civil service in South Africa through support for the Public Policy Partnership. We have supported research into the use of technology in higher education, for instance through a grant to the Multimedia Education Group at the University of Cape Town - an initiative which seeks to utilize information technology to overcome gaps in university preparation - and supported digitization of historical materials and rock art through Digital Innovation South Africa http://www.disa.ukzn.ac.za/ and the South African Rock Art Digital Archives.
