Jamia Hamdard releases special fund for students affected by Covid-19
Jamia Hamdard has created a fund to provide financial assistance to students affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Covid-19 has touched all spheres of our lives, but it has had an unparalleled impact on the education sector. Given the growing demands of students and given the difficulties they face, Jamia Hamdard’s administration has decided to create a special fund for students affected by Covid.
Announcement of the Jamia Hamdard Special Fund
The Vice-Chancellor took the initiative to create a special fund “The Vice-Chancellor’s Fund for the Benevolence of Deserving Students” by deducting part of the salaries of teaching and non-teaching staff belonging to group “A” and to- above. The gesture was very well recognized and appreciated by all the staff where many staff members volunteered to offer more than a day’s salary for this fund.
Who is eligible for the Jamia Hamdard Special Fund?
The fund was created for deserving and needy students, who are in urgent need of such help, due to the loss of their livelihood and are facing serious financial problems due to the Covid pandemic. These students who have lost their parents (employees) / loss of jobs / profession, etc. can benefit from a concession by submitting their applications / applications along with all relevant documents to their respective Deans for review.
In another important decision, the following actions were taken by the administration of the University:
(i) Fee concessions of up to 25 percent will be awarded to some of the deserving students from funds provided by the sponsoring organization, the Hamdard National Foundation;
(ii) The fine for late fees due to delay in submitting their fees due to financial issues has been waived for all students;
(iii) Allowed the submission of costs in installments without imposing a late payment fine. These concessions were made on the recommendation of a duly constituted committee to genuine and deserving students.
Vice-Chancellor Professor MA Jafri, speaking on the establishment of the Fund, said that “we know that many of our students have faced unique challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. After accessing the situation, we learned that there were several students at the university who had lost one or the other of their parents, some lost their father who was the sole breadwinner of their family. .
We waive fees for these students, which will help them pay for their education by providing them with access to our Charitable Fund, which helps students pay for fees and other university expenses.
