In the spring of 2020, the American University in Bulgaria established the Student Support Fund to help students facing financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic continue their education at AUBG without disruption. After the end of the COVID-19 crisis, the Student Support Fund has remained in existence and updated its goal to helping students in severe financial distress caused by a variety of reasons, such as health issues, loss of parent employment, etc., stay in the classroom.

Throughout its existence, the Student Support Fund has received enthusiastic support from alumni, faculty, staff and the university board of trustees as well as institutions like the America for Bulgaria Foundation. The latter has consistently matched donations as part of its support for the university.

Thus, joining our efforts towards the worthy cause of the Student Support Fund has once again proved the bond and strength of our community to overcome crises together. We have reminded ourselves how agile and resilient our community had always been and would continue to be, to ensure the sustainability of our one-of-a-kind institution. Thank you all for your unwavering dedication!
