Emergency Allowance for StudentsRaul Santos
The University of Porto created a new emergency grant to support students who are suffering from serious economic and social needs caused directly by the COVID-19 Pandemic, namely unemployment, illness or other situations of social fragility.
The U.Porto’s COVID-19 Emergency Allowance consists of a single instalment of 350 euros to support accommodation and food expenses for students, bridging the sudden decrease in income needed to attend the U.Porto.
All national and international students enrolled in any cycle of studies at the U.Porto that are in a situation of financial need caused directly by the COVID-19 Pandemic can apply for this grant.
Applications must be submitted from April 6th to 10th, at the Social Action Services website. Upon financial availability, new application periods may be opened later.
The results of the applications will be be announced by April 24. The allowance will be paid by bank transfer within five working days after the application is approved.
