Singumbe Muyeba, a PhD student in the CSSR and the Sociology Department, has won a prestigious Fox International Fellowship to spend a year at Yale University in the USA. Singumbe's doctoral research examines the consequences of home-ownership for low-income households in Cape Town and Lusaka (Zambia). He will be using the opportunity of a year a Yale to read widely, audit relevant courses, and analyse his research. Singumbe is the fourth student from the CSSR to win a Fox Fellowship, following in the footsteps of Brendan Maughan-Brown, Colin Almeleh and Eduard Grebe. Singumbe has also won a scholarship to attend a Summer School on Comparative Urban Studies in Amsterdam in July, organised by the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research (IJURR) and Research Committee (RC) 21 of the International Sociological Association. Well done Singumbe.
