Förderverein für in Not geratene Studierende - Association for students in need

The „Förderverein für in Not geratene Studierende“ was founded in 1992. We provide financial support in emergencies and in special hardships. The association members work entirely on a voluntary basis and with money from private donations as well as with support of the AStA and the TU Darmstadt.

How we help

All enrolled students at the TU Darmstadt are entitled to apply for an one-time financial support. The association‘s board assesses the eligibility for support according to detailed guidelines. The primarily fees which are covered by our help are those for health insurance, rent and semester fees. Special demands will be reviewed individually.
