Many sources of income are now gone due to the Corona Pandemic. But also in the future financial emergencies can arise among our students. In order to help UdK Berlin students, the "Solidarity Fund of the UdK Berlin" was established at the studierendenWERK BERLIN. The fund is financed by donations. From this, UdK Berlin students can receive grants for projects, materials, fees, licenses and work equipment. These are one-time grants. Students who are enrolled at the Berlin University of the Arts and whose financial situation requires special support are eligible to apply.
The Berlin University of the Arts supports the acquisition of resources for the fund. The grants will be awarded by the studierendenWERK BERLIN via an online platform on their website, probably starting in January 2022. Together, we want to make as much of an impact as possible for UdK Berlin students in financial need in this way.
The initiative is not a substitute for the necessary state action, but a solidary supplement.
