Covid-19 Student Relief Fund
Access to education should not be dependent on wealth.
Let's crowdfund to bridge the digital divide and #CapTheGap
Universities across the country have had to shut down in response to an unprecedented nation-wide lockdown. Where possible, universities have already pivoted to online and distance learning.
Surveys indicate that between 10% - 30% of students at affluent universities do not have access to adequate computing resources. This percentage is far higher at historically disadvantaged universities who are not in a financial position to provide these resources to their students.
Government support is unlikely to reach all students in need, or to reach them in time to complete the academic year.
Together we can #CapTheGap and ensure that missing middle students in their final year as well as those in postgraduate studies can complete their year successfully.
