Financial Support and Lending Offers

The university offers different financial aids which parents can apply for. In addition, there is the possibility to lend notebooks and toys.

"Welcome Present" for Newborn Student Babys

In order to ease the financial burden on families, students with children receive a one-off welcome payment of 50 euros. The subsidy is borne by the Studentenwerk Frankfurt (Oder). The application, including the supporting documents, must be submitted to the Studentenwerk no later than six months after the birth of the child. Of course, fathers are also entitled to apply.

You can find the application form here.

More information about the welcome letter can be found on the website of the Studentenwerk Frankfurt/Oder.

Since January 2017, the AStA of the HNEE also offers the possibility to plant a tree for newborns. For more information, please see the pages of the AStA.

Allowance for the Semesterticket

Students with children have the opportunity to receive a subsidy towards the cost of the semester ticket* (more) in the winter semester. This can be applied annually between 1 September and 25 October (deadline) at the Team of the Family-friendly University.

If your child/children were born between 1 October and 31 December of the current year, the application can be submitted until one month after the birth. Subject to the availability of funds, these applications will then still be considered.

Please complete the application form, sign it and send it with all attachments to familie@hnee.de . The documents will be destroyed immediately afterwards.

*The amount of the grant depends on the respective budget of the Family-friendly University. There is no right to payment.
