The Makerere University College of Humanities and Social Sciences on Thursday 23 August, 2013, received a Shs3.2 billion grant known as the early career scholars programme from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

According to Dr Edgar Fred Nabutanyi, the career scholars programme coordinator, the money is supposed to nurture a new generation and community of scholars who will provide intellectual leadership at the college which is currently facing staffing challenges.

“The established structure is for all departments to have five professors. The department of history does not have a professor, department of literature has only two instead of five, in some departments like political science the few who are there are retiring,” he explained.
