Applications for the SRC Assistance Fund 



The SRC Assistance Fund aims to help students who are unable to register due to outstanding fees.



The SRC Assistance Fund is open to all students of the University of Cape Town who were registered in 2020 provided that:

  • For a South African student:
    • the student was not on any kind of financial aid during 2020.
  • For an international student:
    • the student must provide proof that they are able to pay for the upcoming year’s fee since international students cannot register unless they pay the full amount at the beginning of the year.


Principles of Selection

The conditions of award include:

  • Financial need
  • Academic performance
  • Year of study
  • Debt size

The Assistance Fund Committee reserves the right to alter the conditions of award based on available funding, including setting the maximum award that will be made to a student. 

Applications for the 2021 cycle closed on the 25 February 2021.
