Student Support Fund

The G&G Pélisson Foundation

Institut Paul Bocuse, together with the G&G Pélisson Foundation, has created a Support Fund for Institut Paul Bocuse students facing unexpected financial hardship in the current context.

The loss of on-demand temporary work contracts and the cancellation of internships, combined with family situations that have also deteriorated (loss of employment, partial unemployment, suspension of activities, etc.), affect the living conditions of students. In addition to this financial hardship, there are also psychological difficulties linked to isolation and the absence of a social life.

Thanks to the G&G Pélisson Foundation, the Institute has set up a fund to provide the best possible support for its students in times of need. This fund is open to all 2020 students and graduates who are experiencing temporary financial hardship.

When you choose Institut Paul Bocuse to “see your dreams come true” you are choosing a place that offers a human touch to your learning experience. It is also a self-learning experience that involves acknowledging your own vulnerabilities.  Vulnerability is different to weakness, which is the inability to cope with your vulnerabilities.  Being vulnerable is a sign that I need others and that one day they will need me.”

Hervé Fleury – General Delegate of the G&G Pélisson Foundation

Emergency assistance

To address this unprecedented situation, the G&G Pélisson Foundation, together with the Institut Paul Bocuse Alumni Association, has released funds exclusively for its students and recent graduates. These funds will be used to help them in their everyday life.

This fund comes in addition to an individual support scheme already in place and will provide help for the following purposes:

  • Housing: rent arrears, etc.
  • Food
  • Healthcare: advance payment of medical expenses, out-of-pocket expenses, etc.
  • Digital technology: internet subscription, telephone subscription, replacement of computer equipment, etc.
  • Transport: TCL travel pass, travel expenses for internships, jobs, etc.
  • Trousseau or learning material: cost of purchasing items of uniform, knife cases, etc.

An emergency commission will study each student’s individual circumstances. One-off allocations will be awarded to assist Institut Paul Bocuse students in their day-to-day living conditions.
