HEC Foundation: a solidarity fund to support students affected by the Covid-19 crisis

The current health crisis is affecting the already fragile financial situation of some of the School's students and their families. Many of them are facing financial difficulties due to the cancellation of their internship. 

This is why the HEC Foundation has set up a solidarity fund to help students, to anticipate the support that will be needed in the coming months, and to ensure the continuity of the aid that it allocates each year to students in the different programs.

Let's mobilize and show solidarity to help students in difficult situations!
