# After half a decade, the University of Cape Town’s inaugural Future Leaders Programme cohort have reached the finish line. Out of the 12 researchers who joined the programme in 2018, eight remain within the university, and four are no longer primarily affiliated with the institution. UCT says the programme nurtures young, up-and-coming scholars from across the university, with a view of securing a sustainable future leadership for the institution. One of the participants, the Department of Oceanography’s doctor Katye Altieri says the unrestricted funds from the programme were valuable.
