2019 Student Aid Charity Activity Launched
Recently the Hunan Charity Federation (HNCF) announced that the 2019 Student Aid Charity Activity officially launched on July 20. If you are a candidate for China's national college entrance examination this year, have been admitted to a higher education institution, and are concerned about tuition, you may apply for financial aid from HNCF.
The event was jointly hosted by HNCF, Zoomlion, Hunan Xiangjiao Alcohol Industry Co. Ltd., the Hunan Economic TV Station, and the Xiaoxiang Morning Herald.
This year the funding is available to new admittees to higher education including those granted early admission and those on the admission lists of the first and second batch of universities. They are from urban or rural identified poor families, households receiving subsistence allowances, or households having major-illness patients. They will receive a one-time financial aid of 3,000 -5,000 CNY. Tuition-free college students do not qualify for assistance.
Begun in 2003, this charity activity has been held 16 times. HNCF alone has raised more than 91 million CNY for 23,000 lower-income students. The Hunan charity system has raised nearly 240 million CNY to help more than 48,000 lower-income students pay for college education expenses.
