Temporary Financial Aid

The temporary financial aid serves regular students who find themselves in an unforeseeable social situation of need which is not self-inflicted and where state subsidies are not available.

The help in special circumstances of the municipality of Vienna , the needs-based minimum benefit and the housing grants are potential subsidies.

The situation of need must be presented convincingly and a certain financial budget planning of the applicant is a prerequisite. This scholarship does not offer regular support to students, but rather temporary financial relief, for which reason students may apply for this aid as a lump sum. Please understand that living costs (such as rent, energy costs, food, etc.) cannot be compensated by the temporary financial aid.
