The Social Assistance Foundation funded by voluntary financial contributions from the academic and administrative staff of the University, allocates 7-month grants to students for food and health benefits and other grants for need in emergency situations. Every year the number of students who hand out cards for free food grows in proportion to the increase in the quantity of donations. Curators at the faculties and high schools and also the management of student dormitories and the management of Center of Development and Counseling organize free food for needy students. In cases where the University is unable to make any payments to assist in health care and treatment because of certain provisions, these students are funded by the above-mentioned foundation. Besides, during summer vacation some students who cannot go home because of lack of money, transportation costs are provided on credit.
