Setting up a solidarity fund to help students in need against the Coronavirus epidemic
The crisis is already having an impact on our students and their families. That is why the HEC Foundation launched a solidarity fund. Coming together to help students in difficult situations and make a donation here.
The current crisis is affecting the already-fragile financial situation of a number of students and their families. Some have already spontaneously talked about their need for one-off financial support. For this reason, an initial committee meeting was held last Friday and we are now pleased to announce that we have awarded exceptional grants to ten or so students.
Well aware that requests for aid from our students will rise in the coming weeks, and very likely at the start of the next academic year, we hope to be able to count on the mobilization and solidarity of our entire community continue to support these students in difficulty, but also to guarantee continuity in the aid we provide each year to students on all the HEC Paris programs ( Grande Ecole, MBA, Phd).
All the members of the HEC Foundation team remain at your disposal for any further information about this solidarity fund : firstname.lastname@example.org
This solidarity initiative comes as part of a generous and active mobilization on the part of the entire HEC community. This link will take you to all the efforts underway: United Against Coronavirus.
For exemple, you will find the Hackathon, launched by HEC students that they have organized for 10-12 April, a new remote mentoring scheme between HEC students and high-school pupils, the fundraising effort organized by HEC Alumni in support of " Médecins sans Frontières " and " Médecins du Monde" associations.
