Assistance at the start

The University of Freiburg offers financial help for students that are starting their studies. The program was developed in cooperation with the Freiburg-Schwarzwald Student Union. It is a bridge financing in the first semesters of your studies, e.g. if you do not receive a scholarship or BAföG.

  • The "Studienstarthilfe" offers students a short-term and limited financial aid at the start of their studies of a maximum of 750 € per month.
  • The aid is granted after a detailed examination of the applications.
  • The financial aid is also accompanied by advice on how to apply for permanent financial aid and bridges the period until it is granted and paid out.
  • The maximum duration is 6 months.
