COVID-19 student crisis grants

Throughout 2021, Monash saw an increasing need to support students as a result of continued stress caused by COVID-19 including lockdowns and loss of employment. Emergency grant payments totalling $306,000 were provided to 630 students, with $297,000 of this assistance provided in emergency payments directly to the students’ bank accounts, and $9000 consisted of food vouchers and payments for emergency accommodation. Our generous Monash alumni contributed more than $30,000 of this assistance as part of donation appeals.
