The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), in partnership with Universities South Africa (USAf), will be hosting the 2021/2022 HSRC-USAf Medal for the Social Sciences and Humanities on 12 April 2022 under the theme ‘Engaged Scholarship’.

The medal is awarded annually to scholars who have made outstanding contributions to scholarship in the social sciences and humanities through their research. The award aims to anchor and celebrate the social sciences’ role in understanding societal issues and informing policy and programmes to improve people’s lives.
