As of June 1, refugees from Ukraine can apply for financial support for schooling, vocational training or studies under the Federal Training Assistance Act (BAföG). The Bafög application for studies can be submitted to the relevant student services, and for school-based training to the relevant district offices.
Refugees with a residence title or a corresponding fictitious certificate are eligible for Bafög. Applicants must be under 30 years of age at the start of the grant, although there are exceptions for second-chance education and people with children under 14. If refugees from Ukraine continue their studies online in Ukraine, they are not eligible for Bafög. The requirements for Bafög entitlement should be clarified in advance with the relevant authorities. Pupils do not have to pay back the money for their education. Trainees and students, on the other hand, receive half of the subsidy amount as an interest-free loan from the state, which they must repay over a long period of time.
The application can be filled out and submitted online at: www.bafoeg-digital.de/ams/BAFOEG
