The Student RAG Community Service (SRCS) is a community engagement initiative of the North-West University (NWU) based on the Potchefstroom Campus and is the largest student-driven community engagement initiative in the southern hemisphere. It is a unique NWU tradition that you will find in few other places. This tradition encapsulates the spirit of the NWU’s students: a commitment to their community and the determination to ensure a better life for those the university serve.
With a part of the funds generated through student-led fundraising initiatives, following a process of application and adjudication, the SRCS annually allocates once-off support to community-based projects, organisations and individuals who have applied for support. This support may be given through donations that may be monetary, product- or service-related in nature.
Due to the limited resources available for allocation, not all applicants will ultimately receive support, or receive the full extent of support initially applied for. It is important to note that this support is once-off and does not serve as a grant or similar funding support structure.
Community-based projects, organisations and individuals are invited to submit applications for the above-mentioned once-off support provided by the SRCS, in line with the information and process described on the university’s website https://studies.nwu.ac.za/student-representative-council/potchefstroom-….
All applications must be received on or before 31 August 2023
