Financial Support for students struggeling due to COVID-19:

Students having financial problems caused by COVID-19 situation, can apply for a interest-free student loan offered by KfW. International students can apply as of June 1, 2020 and the first payment could reach you after July 1, 2020. The special loan conditions for international students are only temporary available until March 31, 2021. 

Information in German and application is available here.

If you are demonstrably in an acute, pandemic-related (economic or financial) emergency and require immediate support, you can also apply for bridging assistance by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This is ONLY possible if you have less than 500€ currently available to you.

Please see the FAQ for students in English or in German and this website for application.
