Corona pandemic: bridging aid for students in financial emergency situations

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is helping students who are demonstrably in a financial or economic emergency situation owing to the corona pandemic with allowances totalling 100 million euros. They are paid out via the student service organisations – the Studierenden- or Studentenwerk (STW).

Note: You can apply for bridging aid online as of 16th of June 2020 on. However, for technical reasons, we will only be able to process and assess the applications and initiate payments after the 29th of June 2020.

Please help us to quickly process all applications by refraining from inquiries at the student service organisations. Thank you!
