Amy Ellen Schwartz and colleagues published The Global COVID-19 Student Survey: First wave results, in Issue 79 of Covid Economics: Vetted and Real-Time Papers.

Some of their results show 26% of students had a family member experience job loss, 56% of those who had internship plans for the summer of 2020 had them cancelled, and 37% of those who had a job offer had it cancelled. With respect to education, 12% of students withdrew from at least one course, 41% were uncertain about coming back to school in the fall of 2020, and 83% expressed that the lack of contact with faculty or other students was challenging.
