Crown Institute of Higher Education (CIHE) has announced a 2.5 million-dollar
financial support package to assist CIHE students during this period of financial
hardship. This commitment to CIHE students recognises the impact of the
Coronavirus pandemic on the lives of all international students in Australia.
Chairman of the CIHE Board of Directors, Emeritus Professor John Gray said, “We
are doing this as part of our corporate social responsibility and our abiding
commitment to safeguard the wellbeing of our international students.”
CIHE’s principal shareholder Mr. Deepak Khadka said “We also hope that this
commitment provides reassurance to our students’ families that they are in caring
hands.”
The announced Relief and Recovery Financial Hardship Fund includes measures for
both personal and financial support.
CIHE has reduced fees dramatically by 17% for all currently enrolled students. To
provide for students who are in special need, CIHE will provide a cash gift of up to
$500. To access this gift, students need only apply, providing documentation that
substantiates their claims of hardship.
Fee payment terms have been made more friendly. Students can pay fortnightly or
even weekly and CIHE has waived the usual installment-administration and late-
payment fees. This will enable students to continue studying without needing to find
the whole semester’s fee up front.
Further reducing the need to find a large payment is the decision to allow students to
enroll in only three subjects in Semester 2, reducing by 25% their total fee
commitment though the worst period of the virus.
There is also a generous scholarship program, the Dean’s Award, for students who
can maintain steady progress, which provides a discount on fees of up to a further
15% on top of the other discounts, depending on the students’ track record of
achievement.
