In talks between the Deutsches Studentenwerk, the student unions and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), an agreement in principle has been reached to reinstate the bridging assistance for students in pandemic emergency situations for the month of November. Further details are still being discussed.
The application for the month of November 2020 is to be made possible again via the nationwide established IT platform www.ueberbrueckungshilfe-studierende.de in a pure online procedure. Please wait until the time comes! Any documents and requests already sent to the student unions, the Deutsches Studentenwerk or the BMBF in this context cannot be processed or returned. Please refrain from further inquiries; we cannot say more at this time.
