Interim financial aid fund available from Federal Ministry of Education and Research

How to apply
International and domestic students at German Higher Education Institutions can now apply for an interim financial aid fund.

As announced by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and Deutsches Studentenwerk the interim financial aid complements the other initiatives that have already been launched to support students in the unprecedented situation caused by COVID-19.

Students benefiting from loans, scholarships or similar in the relevant month are not excluded from applying for interim financial aid. Depending on the proven need, between 100 euros and 500 euros can be paid out as a non-repayable grant.

Applications may be submitted separately for these months: November 2020, December 2020, January 2021, February 2021 and March 2021. In case you can document that you are in a financial hardship due to the pandemic, an application can be made for each new month.
