Please help us!

Our students are hard hit by the Corona pandemic financially. They are no longer able to work part-time and thus cannot finance their living. They need our fast, non-bureaucratic help. Help us to help!

The “Friends and Patrons of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena” are launching a fundraising campaign for the students of the University.

The coronavirus has reached the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and poses major challenges to the University. These are unprecedented times.

Many student jobs are currently discontinued. The dining halls are closed, food is more expensive without the student services organization; and parents often cannot support their children any further because of the changed economic situation (short-time working allowance). Students with children find themselves in an especially difficult situation. International students are particularly vulnerable—they often cannot rely on their parents’ support, who partly live in areas that are also hit hard by the crisis. There is no longer enough money for expenses such as the health insurance, which is especially important right now—and this puts the students’ residence status at risk. Nobody can currently tell how long this crisis will last.

We ask for your help. Let us stand united! Every donation—big or small—supports a student in these uncertain times. Every contribution counts
