BAföG is a state-funded support scheme for students. One half is a grant, the other an interest-free loan. In total you need to repay only 50% of the resulting sum after graduation. In principle, all students of German nationality have a legal right to BAföG funding. But students from abroad can also receive educational grants, under certain conditions – so find out!
