Help Aisha Represent with IARU!

Personal message

I have been accepted to a prestigious summer academic exchange program called the IARU Global Summer Program, with top research universities from all around the world, including Harvard, Cambridge, UCLA Berkeley and Oxford, among others. I require urgent funds to make this possible.

I went through a tough application process to get here and was chosen as 1 of 9 students to represent my university (UCT), out of ALL applicants! As of 2017, UCT is the first African University to join the prestigious IARU alliance, therefore African representation is so important.

The course I have chosen to do is called "Fieldwork in the Global South" and will equip me with highly valuable skills on my academic and career path. The course takes place from 25th June to 18th July 2018 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, but hosted by the University of Copenhagen. For more info on IARU and the program, please check out: http://www.iaruni.org/for-students/global-summer-program

My dilemma:

I have only received a scholarship for the course fees and I need funds for my flights, accommodation and living costs to make this dream possible. The outline of my costs are:

Flights: R 13 000 (estimate)

Accommodation: R2951 (fixed accommodation to be paid)

Living costs estimate: R 2880 (at R120 per day x 24 days)

Total estimate: R 18, 831

Rounded off: R 19 000

Any amount donated would help me, even if not the full amount reached. I appeal to you to help make this opportunity a reality. If 100 people donate a R200, or 200 people donate R100, I will be on my way!
