Corona Emergency Aid
Corona Emergency Aid for Subsistence
Some international students of KIT are in a financial emergency due to the pandemic, because, for example, they have lost their part-time job and have not been able to find a new one so far. These students can now apply to the International Students Office of KIT (IStO) for a Corona emergency aid of 500 euros per month. This aid is financed from the internationalization funds of the Ministry of Science, Research, and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg.
Applications can be submitted for one, two, or a maximum of three month(s). The earliest possible month for payment of the grant is July 2020.
International students of KIT (both regular and temporary students), who do not receive any other emergency funding from a third party in the given funding period are eligible to apply.
Application deadlines: August 1, 2020, September 1, 2020, October 1, 2020
The amount of the financial aid will be based on your financial situation during the last three months before the application is submitted and, thus, on proof of financial distress (for example, loss of income from part-time work). Proof of financial difficulties must be provided in the form of up-to-date bank statements.

Due to the corona crisis, we decided to change the deadline for applications. This allows us to react more flexibly to the needs of students in a financial crisis. The deadline expires on the first day of each month until November 1, 2020. Afterwards, the application deadlines will end every six months parallel to the start of the summer and winter terms.
The student has performed well in his/her studies (at least 2.5),
