The Study Grant Authority awards state subsidies to eligible students. A range of services, such as study grants, maintenance grants and travel allowances, are offered as part of our study support scheme.
The study grant is intended to provide access to a degree course for motivated and capable young people. Austrian citizens and “foreigners and stateless persons with an equivalent status” can apply for a study grant (§ 4 StudFG - Austrian Student Support Act). Please contact the Study Grant Authority for more detailed information on this.
The most important conditions for receiving a study grant are social eligibility and proof of study progress.
You can find all the information you need on the Study Grant Authority website.
