BACKGROUND

Following the coronavirus pandemic, the University of Geneva has created an emergency fund to help students who have lost part of their income.

RESPONSE STRATEGY

Emergency financial aid is offered to students of UNIGE and HES-SO Geneva who are in a difficult financial situation and whose income is now insufficient to meet their needs following the economic downturn linked to the Coronavirus.

The Didier and Martine Primat Foundation contributes to this aid in the form of scholarships to be awarded to students enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme at the University or the HES-SO Geneva.

EXPECTED RESULTS

30 students supported until the end of August 2020
10 students supported during the fall semester.
