Support for Ukrainian students and scientists in the Trier region

Support for Ukrainian students

Students at Trier University who are experiencing financial hardship due to the war in Ukraine can apply for financial assistance from an emergency fund: through the Scholarship Foundation of Rhineland-Palatinate, the state provided funds to assist students at universities in Rhineland-Palatinate with financial hardships resulting from the war in Ukraine. Specifically, the following eligibility requirements exist:

- Enrollment at Trier University of Applied Sciences no later than the start of support

- non-German citizenship, especially Ukrainian citizenship

- Presentation of the emergency situation resulting directly from the war in Ukraine

- Presentation of the war-related needs (especially loss of other support, additional costs, especially for living, rent and support measures).

As a student with Ukrainian roots, you are presumably also affected by this. Support can be provided in the form of short-term scholarships or one-time payments.

In 2022, support payments could be made to needy students on two dates. In the first half of 2023, Ukraine funding has already been awarded to students at Trier University of Applied Sciences. Remaining funds are still available in 2023. If you are affected in this way by the war in Ukraine, you can apply again or for the first time for this support until 20.11.2023 under the mail address: landesstipendium(at) For this we need from you

• a letter of no more than 2 pages in which you describe your emergency situation and quantify the additional support needs that have arisen. If you have already received funding in 2022 or first half year 2023 and have continuing support needs, it is sufficient for you to concisely explain this to us.

• a completed scholarship application form. 

(Note: You may ignore the deadlines listed in the document, and 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). If you have already received funds in 2022, this form is also dispensable. In this case, explain to us concisely and informally that your situation has not changed from 2022 or first half year 2023.

After November 20, 2023, we will inform you in a timely manner about the approval or non-approval of any assistance requested. It is possible that there will 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.

Financial support in need

If you are about to enroll at Trier University of Applied Sciences, have Ukrainian citizenship, and have fled Ukraine, you can contact the Studierendenwerk Trier to apply for a one-time payment of up to 300 euros in case of financial need. The contact details can be found at:
