If you were looking for a bit of extra cash for your studies, look no further.
The student’s council of the University of Malta, KSU, has just announced a new set of funds for UoM students. There will be just over €60,000 in new funds for student in a number of areas.
“The KSU funding programme for 2018 will be distributed across a number of different fields,” said Joseph Teuma, KSU Finance Officer. “The application dates for these funds are different: most of them will be open immediately, while some will open in May.”
Some of the included themes over which the €60,000 will be distributed are international opportunities, research, culture and sports, and even a motorbike fund.
The money for the funds comes directly from KSU as a financially independent organisation, and is gathered through sponsorships throughout the year. The amount available this year is an increase over last year’s funds.
The funds were announced today in a launch event in the University Quadrangle.
The Hon. Dr. Clifton Grima, Parliamentary Secretary for Youths, Sports, and Voluntary Organisations, and the Rector of the University of Malta, Prof. Alfred Vella attended the launch.
