Successful applicants receive a grant in accordance with the German 'Nachwuchsförderungsgesetz' of 1,000 € per month and, if necessary, a children’s allowance of 102.26 € for the first child and 51.13 € for each subsequent child. 75% of the grant is a loan.

Repayment of the loan begins three years after the grant period ends and is arranged in fixed instalments of at least 51.13 €. If the loan is repaid in full in a single instalment, there is a discount of up to 40%, depending on the total amount of the loan.

Students may also apply for a housing allowance ('Wohngeld'). For registered citizens on a low income, the city of Berlin pays a monthly rent amount of up to approximately 220 € (utility bills are not included).

Student applicants for a housing allowance must fill out a 'Wohngeldantrag' at the Bürgeramt: http://www.stadtentwicklung.berlin.de/wohnen/wohngeld/
