Scholarships for law clerks

 

The Constitutional Court Trust administers two scholarships for the benefit of former law clerks. The Ismail Mahomed Fellowship is available to former clerks of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal, while the Franklin Thomas Fellowship is available to former clerks of the Constitutional Court only.

 

The Ismail Mahomed Fellowship

Judge Ismail Mahomed

The Ismail Mahomed Fellowship was established to honour the memory of the late Judge Ismail Mahomed, a founding member of the Constitutional Court and later Chief Justice. It is funded from an endowment granted by Atlantic Philanthropies. The fellowship is granted annually for postgraduate studies at the University of Michigan Law School, or any other participating University.

Candidates must have demonstrated a commitment to the promotion of human rights.
