The AStA offers social loans as part of its social counselling service. Due to the increased cost of living, the financial pressure on students has increased considerably in recent years. In order to counter financial hardship and to provide those affected with the means to find sustainable arrangements, students may apply for an interest-free social loan from the AStA.
On top of that, the AStA may also recommend an emergency scholarship from the university's 'Quality in Studies and Teaching' foundation. In addition to these emergency scholarships, the foundation awards merit scholarships that are worth applying for.
A social loan and a recommendation for an emergency scholarship requires social counselling by the AStA. The counselling will clarify the specific award criteria and requirements and, if necessary, indicate other options for aid and approaches.
