BAföG – Federal Education and Trainings Assistance Act

 

What is BAföG?

BAföG stands for “Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz” (Federal Education and Trainings Assistance Act). It is a State grant for students and covers cost of living and education.

How can I get the BAföG?

BaföG can only be obtained by submitting an application with the fulfilled forms at the competent “Studierendenwerk”. To keep the deadline, an informal application is sufficient at the beginning of the process.
