Hyogo Akashi Tuition fee loan up to 1 million yen Corona Virus Impact May 19 17:42
Akashi City, Hyogo Prefecture has announced that it will raise the maximum amount from the current 600,000 yen to 1 million yen for the tuition fee lending system, which was started to help students who are financially tough due to the effects of the new coronavirus.
Akashi City started its own support system to lend interest-free to students in the city who are having trouble paying their tuition fees this month, and a series of consultations were asked that tuition fees exceeded 10,000 yen and were insufficient.
Therefore, Akashi City raised it to 1,000,000 yen on the day of the first day, but there was a voice from the student etc. of the nursing school etc. who wanted to add it, and decided to raise it further to 1,000,000 yen.
In addition, it was said that the loan would be limited to the amount of delivery time until the end of next month, but if it is the tuition fee of the first semester of this year, it is a policy to rent out even if the delivery date is after July.
The government decided to provide up to 10,000 yen per person on The 19th over support measures for students whose income severed, but Mayor Izumi Fusaho said in an interview, “The national support plan can cover only the cost of living, and tuition fees cannot be covered at all. We have received more than 100 consultations in the last three weeks, and we have a very large need and we would like to support them as much as possible.”
The City of Akashi has decided to submit a relevant supplementary budget proposal to the city council, which will be held next month, to secure a project cost of 50 million yen to implement this support package.
