Apply for education and participation for children, adolescents and young adults


The aim of the education package is not to deprive children from financially weak families of the necessary educational and participation opportunities. As an entitled person or as a parent, you have the option of applying for financial support from the state. The funding covers the following areas:

Up to the age of 18:

·         Participation in social and cultural life, e.g. in a sports club or music school, is supported with up to EUR 15.00 per month.

Up to the age of 25:

  • Personal school equipment is supported by EUR 150 per year (EUR 100.00 for the 1st, EUR 50.00 for the second half of the school year).
  • Costs will be borne for supplementary adequate learning support to the extent necessary to achieve the learning objectives set out in the provisions of school law.
  • Coverage of the costs of a community school or daycare lunch
  • For one-day trips from schools, day care centres and day care, the costs will be reimbursed in actual amounts.

  • The actual expenses required for transport to the nearest school of the chosen course (student monthly passes) will be covered (own share, insofar as the ticket can also be used outside the school transport).
