Bridging aid from the BMBF for students in need

Corona Pandemic: Federal interim financial aid for students is back again
Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) supports students who are in a proven and current financial emergency due to the corona pandemic. Again, emergency grants are available until September 2021. The grants are allocated trough the network of the local student service organisations - the Studentenwerke (STW).

Attention: you can apply online for interim financial aid.


If you have more than € 500.00 in your checking account at the time of the application, please do not make an application as this must be rejected.

Please understand and refrain from asking us until then, thank you!
