Quick reaction to lockdown: ÖH releases € 250,000 for students in financial distress, applications can be made by the end of 2021
Innsbruck (OTS) – The ÖH Innsbruck (LFU) is now making € 250,000 available for students who find themselves in financial distress due to the fourth lockdown. “Students are forgotten again. It cannot be that the lockdown will again be at the expense of the students. That is why we would like to explain a financial safety net directly to those affected, ”said the chairman of the Innsbruck Students’ Union of the initiative.
One-time support of € 400 for affected students
The renewed lockdown also hits students hard. “
Some have to work alongside their studies in order to be able to afford student life. If this sideline is lost in the lockdown, a few hundred euros will make a serious difference. Therefore, from now on there is the possibility of receiving a one-off € 400 financial support from the ÖH Innsbruck“, ÖH chairman Daniel V. Müller explains the new fund.
The need for action on the part of politics is long overdue. Since the beginning of the pandemic, marginally employed people have been left with nothing when it comes to financial support“, Criticizes Lukas Schobesberger, 1st deputy. ÖH chairman. Most of the students work alongside their studies on a minor basis. Schobesberger adds: “
Students paid attention and deserved help. “
Fast conception and implementation, application by the end of 2021
The support fund was conceptualized and implemented by the ÖH Innsbruck within a very short time. “
From the moment the fourth lockdown was called, it was clear to us that we had to react immediately. We have set everyone in motion to create an offer within a very short time that will take away students’ existential fears and support them directly“, Describes the ÖH chairing team consisting of Daniel V. Müller, Lukas Schobesberger and Anna-Maria Weiß the procedure.
An application for support can be submitted through the website of the ÖH Innsbruck until December 31, 2021.
