The COVID-19 pandemic has been seriously affecting all businesses and all walks of life. At PolyU, we are particularly concerned with the financial challenges faced by some of our students and their families due to the current situation. Therefore, the PolyU COVID-19 Student Support Fund was set up to provide assistance to our students who are greatly affected by this pandemic.
The Fund aims to alleviate the unexpected financial hardship of PolyU students due to the outbreak of the COVID-19; strengthen the spirit of solidarity of the PolyU community to tide over the difficult times; and enhance the resilience of our students. PolyU’s management team has donated 10% of their salaries over a period of 12 months from April 2020 to help students in need during this unprecedented crisis. The Fund has concluded on 31 May 2020 which assisted 716 students to overcome the challenges during this tough period of time.
One of the many recipients expressed gratitude to donors, “I am very much grateful for the subsidy which I shall receive from you shortly. Please send my many thanks to the donors of this imminently helpful PolyU COVID-19 Student Support Fund.”
PolyU and our students appreciate the generous support from alumni, supporters and friends of PolyU Community. In the meantime, PolyU will continue to invest in our future, and the next generations.
