Given the national crisis of student funding for tertiary education as highlighted recently, the Students' Representative Council is committed to decreasing financial barriers to entry at our university. In addition to our commitment to free education in our lifetime, the UCT SRC recognizes the need for immediate financial intervention. In response to the call for greater access to our university, the 2016 SRC are embarking on a national fundraising campaign under the banner #FundingFutures to provide financial relief to students who are unable to register due to historical debt.
We aim to utilise and maximise networks within enterprise, alumni and students in our effort to raise as much money as possible towards #FundingFutures. The campaign is fully supported by the Vice-Chancellor and is being run in collaboration with the Development and Alumni Department.
As part of our campaign, we will be running a phonathon where a student or a member of the SRC will contact you telephonically to discuss the campaign and ask you to pledge your financial support. We will be conducting the phonathon from the 3rd till the 10th of February, 2016.
