Study ThuringiaPlus

First-year students now have the opportunity to receive support for their start in academic life. The one-time grant of 500€ is for first-year students from low-income families and can be applied for at the Studierendenwerk Thüringen (stw).

Prerequisite for the grant is, among other things, a first-time admission to a presence study at a Thuringian state or state-recognized university. The start-up aid can be used, for example, for PC hardware and software, study materials and literature, language courses, the semester fee or other items required for the start of studies.

Please note that the financial neediness must be proven by an application for educational support according to the BAföG or, in the case of foreign first-year students who are not entitled to BAföG, by a self-disclosure of their income and financial circumstances. The relevant provisions of the BAföG serve as a guideline for the examination of need.

The following application deadlines must be observed:

  • March 15 of each year for the upcoming summer semester.
  • 15 September of a year for the upcoming winter semester

Further federal support options

In addition to the BAföG and the bridging assistance, the federal government offers other possibilities of financial support. In the form of scholarships, e.g. through the Deutschlandstipendium or the Aufstiegsstipendium, as well as through educational loan programmes.
