USJ Hardship Fund
The present Corona Virus Pandemic and the corresponding preventive measures are having a dramatic effect on the ability of some students to sustain themselves financially.
This is especially true of some of our international students. They chose Macao for their Higher Education but now find the revenue from their home country compromised and they are not permitted to work locally. They are now unable to pay full tuition, housing and even in some cases their food.
To tackle this serious problem, we are establishing a USJ Hardship Fund. It will be managed by our Scholarship and Fellowship Committee and will support any students in exceptionally difficult situations until they can resume their normal lives. The fund will collect on-line Donations and publish regular audited reports on their use. The list of beneficiaries will be strictly confidential. Each student must engage with support and advice provided by the University and will be offered counselling.
