Grants for Students

You can find information on prerequisites, applications, and the amount of family allowance on the Family allowance for students page (in German) at help.gv.at.

Students with no or low family income can apply for housing benefit from the Province of Styria. You can calculate the housing benefit you would expect to receive using the housing benefit calculator (in German: Wohnbeihilferechner) of the Province of Styria.
