Our students have shown us true dedication as RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) has responded to the COVID-19 crisis, and they need our support NOW, more than ever.
The pandemic has caused an unprecedented human and health crisis. The measures necessary to contain the virus have triggered an economic crisis adversely impacting our students’ financial ability to complete their studies. Some students are trying to complete their current semester online without the technology they need at home. Others who rely on their part-time jobs to support their living expenses, have seen their employment put on hold. And, worst of all, due to personal or family loss of employment, some are uncertain if they will return to RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) next semester.
The pandemic prevention measures also caused RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) to cancel its largest Scholarship Fundraising Gala Event in Prishtina, which was planned to take place this May. Many talented and financially underprivileged freshmen students that were hoping and preparing to join RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) through such scholarship funds are now seeing their academic hopes and dreams derailed.
Since our inception, RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) is proud to be a private, non-profit American academic institution. Donations from foundations and donors like you enable generations of future leaders in Kosovo, the region and further abroad to receive a quality American education and to become active and integrated members in our societies. Despite the current difficult situation, our resolve to continue the RIT Kosovo (A.U.K)'s mission of providing a top-quality education to the people of Kosovo is even stronger. Now, more than ever, our STUDENTS need your support!
We believe that charity starts from home. As such, all RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Faculty and Staff, as well as all members of the Board of Trustees have contributed to the campaign, raising a total of $71,128 in donation and pledges.
Together, we can overcome anything. Join us in supporting the students through the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund.
