Corona Emergency Fund for Students

© WWU - Thomas Mohn

Together with the Stiftung WWU, the Universitätsgesellschaft Münster e. V. and the General Students’ Committee (AStA), the Recorate of the University of Münster is calling for donations to build the Corona Emergency Fund for Students. The fund is coordinated by the Fundraising Department.

We ask you for your help!

Due to measures taken to limit the spread of the coronavirus, many students have lost their jobs which are vital for financing their studies. As a result, the number of students who can no longer bear the costs of rent and living without help is increasing, and many are facing existential difficulties. Not all students are able to immediately find another job elsewhere due to health or family reasons, for example.

Consultations in the past few weeks have revealed that students are facing dire circumstances. Couples with children who have lost their entire income after losing their jobs have sought help from the AStA. Students from low-income families whose parents could not support them before have now lost their additional income which they desperately need despite receiving BAföG. Chronically ill students are no longer able to do their jobs because of contact restrictions and measures required to protect their own health.

As a community of solidarity, we want to stand together in this crisis and help the affected students.
Please join us and donate to the Corona emergency fund!

Every donation helps!

All donations benefit students who are in financial difficulties due to the current situation. One-time grants of up to 450 euros each, which can be paid twice per person, are paid for students in need. This corresponds to slightly more than one monthly rent payment in Münster each. The aid is granted as a non-repayable subsidy. The money will be paid out by the University to the students after a review based on defined guidelines and a recommendation by the AStA Social Counselling Office.

Interim report (of 2 July 2020)

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity the interim report is very positive:

  • 363,549 euros are now available for students in need.
  • 666 applications have already been approved and the students have received financial support.
  • Many more students who are in a financial emergency situation will receive short-term support from the emergency fund. The AStA Social Counselling Office is the first contact point and provides counselling to all students in need.
