Surge of solidarity at ICN Business School to help students in difficulty

ICN Business School has just launched an appeal for donations from all graduates, in order to increase the special COVID-19 solidarity fund aimed at supporting students in difficulty as a result of the current health crisis. In line with its motto ‘Join our family’, the family feeling at the school is stronger than ever during these extraordinary times; it can be witnessed through inter-generational support at the heart of ICN.

ICN, a school operating in a spirit of solidarity

Since the month of March, the COVID-19 health crisis has plunged some ICN students and their families into serious financial difficulty (loss of student jobs, parental employment and financial problems). The school and the ICN endowment fund already support students in difficulty every year (welfare commission, distribution of grants, personalised support by the PEPS service (Professional Experience & Personal Support)).

A health crisis which is having a heavy impact on students

As is the case for all students, COVID-19 is having a heavy impact on students at ICN. The school has registered an increase of almost 10% in the number of applications made to the welfare commission. These are particularly from final year students, up 70% on the usual number, who are usually able to be self-financing as a result of the year of work experience and student jobs.

ICN, not just a school but a family

In the face of these extraordinary circumstances, combined with the magnitude and duration of the health crisis, ICN has decided to go even further this year, providing €200k through the school welfare commissions. To be able to do this, the school has appealed to its graduates to donate to the special COVID-19 solidarity fund, which will go to supporting students in difficulty (study costs or living expenses) via the school welfare commission.
