Federal Education and Training Assistance Act (BAföG)
Basically, three points can be mentioned which are significant for students with disabilities in connection with applications for BAföG:
- A hardship allowance for the calculation of maintenance obligation,
- Funding beyond the maximum duration of funding,
- Consideration of special circumstances caused by the disability in the regulations for repayment of the loan.
More detailed information can be found in the brochure Studium und Behinderung (studying with disabilities, in German) issued by the national German Student Services Association.
