COVID-19 has drastically changed the lives of all USF students, but our USF international students face unique challenges during this global pandemic and are not eligible for financial assistance from the federal CARES Act. Without your assistance, these international students may find it impossible to fulfill their dream of earning a college degree at USF. Your support and advocacy for these highly valued students is greatly appreciated.
Some were forced to remain in the U.S., far away from their families, as the borders to their home countries closed. Others, who were able to travel home, are unsure when they will be able to return to USF. Many are facing the difficult decision of how to continue with their studies since their families have lost jobs and incomes and are unable to provide financial support. Many USF international students are facing multiple stressors at this time, magnified by limited communication with their families, as well as new financial realities caused by the current global economic crisis.
