Emergency Student Aid of the University Freiburg

Please note: This financial aid is only for students from the Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg

The Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, in cooperation with the Studierendenwerk, has set up an emergency aid programme aimed at students at the Albert-Ludwigs-University. It offers bridging aid to students who have fallen into acute economic distress through no fault of their own. The emergency aid is intended to enable them to continue their successful studies.

The emergency study aid is financed by donations raised by the University of Freiburg. A large sum was contributed by the Maria-Landenburger-Foundation in spring 2020. This foundation supports the emergency aid with a grant of 25,000 euros.

The financial support from this programme amounts to up to 300 euros per month and can be granted for a period of up to three months. For each month, a new application has to be submitted.

The support does not have to be paid back. All students of the Albert-Ludwigs-University who have got into financial difficulties through no fault of their own are eligible to apply for funding.

The financial situation at the time of application is the basis for the assessment of applications. Please note that the Emergency Student Aid of the University Freiburg cannot take into account any future financial hardship that may be expected. Emergency student aid only comes into effect if the economic emergency situation cannot be compensated by other support measures, social benefits or funding opportunities.

Based on the criteria of need, urgency, lack of acute financial assistance and the presentation of a permanent support perspective after the end of the grant, the Studierendenwerk decides on the application. The start of the grant can only follow from the month in which the application is submitted.

The support from the Studiennothilfe is granted within the framework of the available funds.

There is no legal claim to funding.

Please note that you can only send this form if all mandatory fields have been filled in and all required documents uploaded.

The funds for the Emergency Student Aid have been collected through donations from alumni and the Association of Friends (Verband der Freunde der Universität Freiburg e.V.). In order to inform donors, but also to raise further funds, we would like to create a pool of supported students who would make themselves available as testimonials if needed - by reporting on how the support from the emergency fund has affected their situation and what positive consequences have resulted.
