Assistance for students who are single parents or pregnant

Assistance from the university scholarship fund

The university scholarship fund assists single parent students as well as single students who are pregnant if the continuation of their studies is in jeopardy due to financial constraints. The university scholarship fund is supported by the Ministry of Education, Science, Continuing Education and Culture.

Subject to the availability of funds, the university scholarship fund provides annual assistance to pregnant and single parent students. Targeted individual measures are supported here that will help accommodate the specific needs facing students in these situations and contribute to alleviating any existing problems they may have.


Students who are facing the possibility that they may need to discontinue their course of study because of financial constraints can apply. Assistance can be provided in the form of

  • Partial assumption of the costs of child/day care minders
  • Partial assumption of the costs of a place at kindergarten
  • Assistance with any necessary course-related absences due to excursions, internships, etc.
  • Assistance in other emergency situations


Applicants are not permitted to take leave of absence during a semester in which they receive financial assistance.
