Support for Ukrainian students and scientists in the Trier region

Emergency aid for Ukrainian students at Trier University of Applied Sciences

Ukrainian students who are already enrolled at Trier University of Applied Sciences and are in financial need because of the war can apply for financial support from the emergency fund of the Studienstiftung Rheinland-Pfalz.

This presumably also affects you as a student with Ukrainian roots. Through the Rhineland-Palatinate Scholarship Foundation, the state may provide funds to support students at Rhineland-Palatinate universities in financial emergencies resulting from the war in Ukraine. The support can take the form of short-term scholarships or one-time payments. It can be applied with immediate effect and compensate for the following war-related circumstances:

  • Loss of previous support from other sources,
  • Additional costs.

If you are affected by the war in Ukraine in this way, you can apply for this support until 12.04.2022 under the mail address: landesstipendium(at)hochschule-trier.de

For this, we need from you a letter of a maximum of 2 pages, in which you describe your emergency and quantify the additional support needs that have arisen and a completed scholarship application.

Note: You may ignore the deadlines listed in the document. The required Attachments 1 through 4 will be omitted; if proof of services rendered is not available from the Office of Examinations within the short deadline, it is dispensable and may be replaced with a sworn statement).

After 12 April 2022, we will notify you promptly of the approval or non-approval of any assistance requested. There may be further opportunities for support for those affected by the war in Ukraine later in the year. We will inform you about this separately in due course.
