University of the Wits SRC Humanitarian Fund
Only about 10% of the Wits student population are NSFAS beneficiaries. The “missing middle” are the many students who fall just above the NSFAS threshold but are still unable to afford university fees.
They are those with a household income ranging from about R120 000 per annum to approximately R400 000 per annum.
This has led to the SRC of 2015/2016 launching the #Access campaign. The target is to raise R10 million to assist the “missing middle”.
