In order to support students with the increased costs for heating, electricity and food, the Bundestag passed the law on a one-time payment (flat-rate energy payment) for students as well as for students of technical colleges.
The state of Schleswig-Holstein has also ordered an expansion of the group of persons eligible to apply to include persons with permanent residence in Schleswig-Holstein who are enrolled or registered at educational institutions outside Germany in other European countries (EU, EEA and Switzerland).
The energy price flat rate of 200 euros must be applied for. There are two different procedures for this:

Federal procedure:

This procedure applies to all persons who were enrolled at a higher education institution in Germany on 1 December 2022 . Also eligible to apply are specialised students and vocational students in courses leading to a vocational qualification of at least two years' duration, if they are registered at a training institution in Germany on the cut-off date. Your questions about the federal procedure are answered in a separate FAQ.

Land procedure:

This procedure is for persons with a residence in Schleswig-Holstein who were enrolled or registered at an educational institution within the EU, the EEA or Switzerland outside Germany (!) on 1 December 2022. You can find an FAQ on the state procedure here on the page.

Please note: You can only apply for the grant once. If you are registered at training institutions both in Germany and abroad, please only use the federal procedure.
