Förderverein für in Not geratene Studierende - Association for Students in Need

The Association for Students in Need (Förderverein der in Not geratene Studierende e.V.) was founded in 1992. We provide financial support in emergencies and special hardship cases. The association members work purely on a voluntary basis and with money from private donations, as well as AStA and TU Darmstadt.

The association is a registered association and has nothing to do legally with the AStA. Therefore, please send your inquiries directly to the association:

We try to reply to your emails as quickly as possible. Please also check your spam folder if you haven't heard from us for a while!


We help quickly and unbureaucratic.

All students starting from the 3rd semester  and PhD students enrolled at TU Darmstadt are entitled to apply for one-time financial support. The association's board of directors assesses the need for support according to detailed guidelines. Each application is checked individually. There are no deadlines and you can apply any time.
