INTRODUCTION TO THE DR NEVILLE ALEXANDER LANGUAGE SCHOLARSHIP
The Dr Neville Alexander Language Scholarship was established in 2013 by PanSALB in an effort to promote and encourage academic interests in disciplines directly related to the promotion of multilingualism, mother tongue education and the development of language in education at all levels of learning.
Dr Alexander who passed away on 27 August 2012 at the age of 75 was in the forefront of multilingualism in the post-apartheid South Africa and one of the major advocates of linguistic diversity and mother tongue education. It is due to his commitment to promote the use and development of indigenous languages that PanSALB is commemorating by naming its scholarship after him. read more
