The Japanese government declared a state of emergency in Hiroshima prefecture, effective from May 16th to May 31st 2021, due to a rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in the prefecture.
In light of the pandemic, HU launched an Emergency Aid Scheme for students and international students alike, who are struggling to make ends meet as a result of a sharp decrease or a total loss of income from part-time work, and is currently continuing this scheme.
We will quickly evaluate the situation of students and international students in need of emergency assistance and provide them with an emergency fund. Students who qualify will receive 30,000 yen per month and those who continue to need support can apply as many times as necessary.
Applications are also open to new students. For more information, please click here: Student Information Portal Momiji and login to My Momiji. (My Momiji can only be used by current students.)
