As a pupil or student, you can receive benefits under the Federal Education Assistance Act (BAföG) if your education is eligible for funding and if you do not otherwise have the funds required for your livelihood and your education.
Student: Only at public schools, not at private universities.
Objective of the training grant:
The aim is to give all young people the opportunity to complete an education that corresponds to their abilities and interests, regardless of their social and economic situation.
Examination by the Office for Educational Support:
After you have submitted a BAföG application, the responsible office for training support will check whether the desired training can be funded. It often makes sense to seek advice from the Office for Educational Support before submitting an application.
Calculation of the individual support:
When calculating your individual funding, flat rates for monthly requirements are assumed. The amount of your subsidy depends on whether you are attending school or studying and on where you live and where you are studying. Your own income and assets as well as the income of your parents are taken into account for the requirement. If you are married, your husband's or wife's income will be taken into account. This also applies to registered civil partnerships. If at least one child under the age of ten lives in your household, you can receive a childcare allowance for each child in addition to the benefits calculated for you under the BAföG.
In exceptional cases, you will also receive the training grant regardless of your parents' income.
