Who is entitled to recieve study grants?
In principle the students in question must be Austrian citizens. Foreign citizens may only be treated equally in the case of close relations to Austria (at least 5 years subject to Austrian income tax via at least one parent), citizens of EEA- countries and third country nationals are treated equally, as far as it may be concluded from the treaty, and refugees under the Geneva Convention. The study grant in Autria has the function to support you with your fees belonging to your studies. But not everybody is entitled to recieve study grants. The social need is assessed on the basis of income and number of family members of the student, his/her parents and his/her spouse. The student’s income is only relevant for periods of time during which the student receives study grants.
We would definitely recommend you to visit the grants department in Innsbruck for more information.
