The number of part-time jobs has dropped dramatically as a result of the pandemic. This severely hit the financial position of many students who earn extra money after graduation. From June to September, the Federal Ministry of Education paid out about 65 million euros in aid to students through student associations.
According to the German Student Union, a total of about 120,000 students have submitted almost 244,000 applications for assistance, of which about 150,000 have already been approved. Students studying at state-recognized universities could apply for assistance from a responsible regional student union until the end of September. The aid was paid not as a loan, but as a grant to support the pandemic crisis. It was provided for the months June, July, August and September.
In total, the Federal Ministry of Education has allocated 100 million euros to support students.
