Application guidelines for "Food Assistance" to Protect the Livelihood of Keio Students (AY2022; first round of applications)

The impact of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) is also affecting the financial situation of Keio students. There are students who have no choice but to cover most of their living expenses through earnings from part-time work due to the financial difficulties of their families, living away from home, etc., but because of reductions in their income, it is thought that some students are finding it difficult to afford sufficient food on a daily basis. With the hope of easing some of the anxieties of these students and helping them maintain the conditions that will enable them to devote themselves to their studies as much as possible, we have decided to continue providing assistance relating to "food" from 2021 academic year. If you would like to receive assistance, please apply in accordance with the following procedures.


1 Details of Assistance

Selected students will receive 3000 yen's worth of "meal vouchers" (300-yen x 10 vouchers) that can be used at designated campus cafeterias.


*Meal vouchers can only be used at designated locations.
*Meal vouchers can be used at shops on all campuses.
*Meal vouchers expire on February 28, 2023. (However, if you will lose your status as a student before this date due to graduation, completion, withdrawal, etc., the expiration date of the vouchers will be the last day that you are registered as a student.)


2 Number of Recipients

1000 students (a tentative combined total between the first and second round of applications)

3 Eligibility

(Only those who meet conditions (a) and (b) below are eligible to apply.)

(a) Students enrolled at an undergraduate faculty or graduate school (including international students.) However, non-degree students, including non-degree students (for credit), and correspondence course students are not eligible to apply.

(b) Students who must cover their academic fees, expenses, and grocery costs through income earned from part-time work, but who are worried because they are not earning enough money due to the closure of their places of employment or their employers refraining from opening their businesses, and are unable to find new part-time work to cover such expenses.

*Privately financed international students who have not yet completed the Spring Semester's "scholarship applicant registration" are also eligible to apply.

4 Selection Criteria

(Students who meet the following criteria will be given preference during selection.)

  • Students from households that have received support at some point after April 2021 from public support programs for measures against COVID-19 implemented by the national or local governments. (At the time of application, please scan and upload a copy of the certificate, etc., showing that you are receiving support from a public support program.)
  • Students from "single-parent" households
  • Students who live away from home and commute to university, but due to their household's financial difficulties, are not receiving enough funds from home to support themselves.
    Household budget guideline: the total income of the salaries of those supporting the household (in principle, the student's parents) is around 8 million yen or less, and any business income they may have other than a salary is about 3.5 million yen or less.


*We may refer to the information on the financial situation of your household that you submitted when you applied for scholarships.
*If your address is different from the "current address" you have registered with the university, please carry out procedures immediately to change your address.
