Grant for students in financial difficulties

Information of the Studierendenwerk on the BMBF bridging fund

Students who are in financial difficulties due to the corona pandemic can now apply for a bridging grant from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This grant does not have to be repaid.

The BMBF's bridging fund with a total of 100 million euros is intended to support those students who are demonstrably in acute pandemic-related difficulties and need immediate help. German and foreign students who are enrolled at state and state-recognized universities in Germany are eligible to apply for a grant.

For further information on the bridging fund and on grant application, see the respective webpage of the Studierendenwerk.
