Monash welcomes relief package for international students

Monash University welcomes the Victorian Government’s $45 million International Student Emergency Relief Fund as part of its emergency support package.

“The relief package is a welcome announcement for the thousands of students across the state including those studying at Monash, who have been affected by this international crisis. This emphasises the value that Victoria places on the many contributions international students make to our society and how fortunate we are that these students choose our state’s high quality institutions for their education.”

“International students are an integral part of our community and deserve our support during these unprecedented and difficult times,” said Monash President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AC.

“The wellbeing of all our students is of utmost importance and we are pleased that the Victorian Government has supported them through this crisis,” Professor Gardner said.
