Statement on planned BAföG budget cuts
Currently there is a heated discussion on cutting the means for BAföG in the state budget for 2024 massively. In case this resolution is approved, students will be negatively affected by this, too. In 2024 only 1.4 billion euros are intended for BAföG in the state budget, whereas this year 1.8 billion euros were spent for it.
There are two important claims regarding BAföG:
Unfortunately neither of these two claims are financeable with the current state budget plan. This is why we together with our umbrella organisation "Deutsches Studierendenwerk" would like to confront the federal government and the members of the Bundestag with their problematic plans in order to prevent a BAföG budget cut.
We rely on the support of the students in order to cause a positive change! How does this work? Share the message and sign the following petition: "Keine Kürzung beim BAföG – Sichere Zukunftschancen für Studierende und Auszubildende!"
