Prof Driscoll: Fund created to financially support our group of financially vulnerable students.

TO cushion the blow of the Covid-19 pandemic on students whose families have been impacted by the pandemic, Taylor’s University and College (Taylor’s) set up a fund valued at RM1mil.

The Financial Hardship Fund deducts up to RM10,000 in fees for eligible students. The March 2020 semester students seeking financial assistance can submit their application through the Taylor’s mobile app.

Additionally, an installment payment scheme has also been introduced.

“With Covid-19 continuing to impact people and countries, the well-being of our students and staff, and ensuring learning continuity so students can complete their courses and graduate, remain our priority.

“As we endure the effects of the pandemic, we are now personally witnessing its impact on the livelihood of our students and their families.

“Following that, we have put together measures to financially support our group of financially vulnerable students, ” said Taylor’s University vice-chancellor and president Prof Michael Driscoll.

The institution is also welcoming the public to sign up for its free online language courses so that they can learn from the safety of their homes.

“Times may be tough now, but we are tougher.

“We will eventually get on the other side of this and together, we will rise stronger, ” said Prof Driscoll.
