Apply for "StudiumThüringenPlus" start-up aid by September 15

Until September 15, students can apply to the Studierendenwerk Thüringen for "StudiumThüringenPlus" start-up assistance from the state of Thuringia for the coming winter semester. This start-up aid is a one-time support in the amount of 500 euros. It is granted to financially needy first-year students who are admitted to a state or state-recognized Thuringian university for the first time to study in attendance form. With "StudiumThüringenPlus," Thuringia aims to make it easier for students from lower-income families to start their studies by the winter semester of 2023/2024.

The initial study assistance may only be used for necessary expenses directly related to the start of studies (e.g. semester fees without semester ticket, PC hardware and software, study materials, study literature, language courses or introductory events before the start of studies). Financial need must be proven by an application for educational support according to the BAföG or, in the case of foreign first-year students not entitled to BAföG, by a self-disclosure of income and financial circumstances; the relevant provisions of the BAföG serve as a guide when assessing need. In addition, the program is aimed at "first-time students," which means that, for example, master's students and students who were already enrolled before the winter semester cannot be granted study start assistance.

"With the Studienstarthilfe, first-time students in need of support can be helped financially to take up and prepare for a course of study in Thuringia, so that the start into the winter semester 2022/23 can succeed as well as possible," says Sandro Nordmann, head of the social services department at Studierendenwerk Thüringen.
