Emergency fund for Ukrainian students
As of today, Ukrainian students can apply for emergency livelihood assistance from the Studentenwerk SH. The social counseling team has provided the necessary capacity to develop the structures for the fund and ensure rapid processing. The state of Schleswig-Holstein provides the funding.
The emergency aid is aimed at students with Ukrainian passports who are enrolled at a university in Schleswig-Holstein and are in a financial emergency situation due to the Ukraine-Russia war. An emergency situation can arise due to the parents' failure to pay maintenance or due to the fact that the part-time job cannot be performed or can no longer be performed to the usual extent due to a current stress situation. Once the application has been submitted, emergency assistance can be paid out within a very short time if the requirements are met.
Approximately 100 Ukrainian students are enrolled in Schleswig-Holstein. Daniela Evers from the Social Counseling Service of the Studentenwerk SH explains, "It was important to us to provide help as quickly and unbureaucratically as possible."
Emergency subsistence assistance for Ukrainian students can be applied for for one to three months. Up to 861 euros (BAföG maximum rate) is paid out per month. The amount of emergency aid is calculated according to individual needs. The money does not have to be paid back.
