The beneficiaries are all full-time, in service education and postgraduate students at all UD’s member universities.

Financial assistance will be additionally given to online learners (support for high-speed Internet connection, database access, learning softwares), whilst scholarships will be granted to necessitous students during the pandemic.

Besides, the deadlines for tuition and fees payments for the 2019 – 2020 academic year will be extended.

Meanwhile, the remaining 7 billion VND will be spent to implement necessary preventive measures at UD’s member universities and affiliations after students’ comeback.

The funding for the above-mentioned two financial assistance packages is deducted from regular savings and welfare of  UD and its member universities.
