Financing with the Federal Education Assistance Act (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz, BAföG)

State funding for students is called BAföG. The goal of BAföG is to enable young people from lower-income families an optimal education, that is, to increase equal opportunities. This means that not everyone is entitled to BAföG. No general statements can be made about whether you have a claim because it depends on many factors.


Get information about how much BAföG (state assistance for students) you can receive with an on-site advising session or using the BAföG calculator.
