Emergency Project against COVID-19 Infections: Student Support Plan
Payment of Gifu University Fund for Living Expenses

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections in Japan and abroad, Gifu University prohibits students' entry into the university, conducts remote classes through ICT (Information and Communication Technology) only, and gives no permission to any extracurricular activities on campus in line with the Gifu University Guideline for COVID-19. We are fully aware that the university students are going through unprecedented difficult situations unfolding on and off campus for many days. It is also very unfortunate that the newly enrolled students have started their campus life without attending the entrance ceremony in April.

With the state of emergency declarations still remain in place in many prefectures and regions, and the infections are taking a heavy toll on the nation's economy, many Gifu University students are suffering financially by their difficult family situations or fewer part-time work opportunities. It is imperative for Gifu University to help students in an economic quandary to enjoy their academic life here at Gifu University.

As we believe that students living away from their families are particularly hit hardest by a sudden, sharp economic downturn, Gifu University has decided to start its unique "Student Support Plan" by which students who are living away from their families, are provided the fund for living expenses, so that they can focus on their studies or research activities, and do not have to give up their dreams for the future.

Please confirm the following terms and conditions for fund application. If you want to apply, please access AIMS-Gifu, enter necessary information to the platform and send before the deadline.

1. Eligible Students

 following conditions:

 application (dormitory residents included)
2) Students/research students who are not receiving grant-type scholarship payments from Gifu
 University, public (such as governments) or private organizations, etc. in time of application.
*i) "Gifu University Students" are defined as "full-time students enrolled in faculties/graduate
 schools of Gifu University." "Research Students" are defined as "undergraduate or graduate
 school research students with "student" visa."
*ii) "Those who are living away from their family residence" are defined as "those who need to
 pay rent and who do not live with their families (parents or guardians)."

 Fellows, and support from the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO).
