Students can, of course, receive advice, but we kindly ask you to take a look at the cultural funding guidelines and the guide to cultural funding on our website first.

For international students, we also offer advice in English, if requested.

Almost all applicants receive funding, although not always in the desired amount. It is always worthwhile to file an application! The prerequisite is of course always that the cultural project complies with the cultural funding guidelines of Studentenwerk Leipzig.

  • exhibitions,
  • carnival events,

  • exhibitions regarding graduation,
  • events concerning political and religious issues,
  • events that are not taking place in Leipzig or
  • events predominantly geared towards sports.
Show details

Applications must be submitted to the Culture Committee of Studentenwerk Leipzig in due time, but no later than four weeks before the project starts and/or before the event takes place, the first show is held, or the like. If you file your application after the four-week deadline, you will have to state your reasons for doing so in writing. The Culture Committee will decide on allowing exceptions.

Show details

The application form from our website must be used, it must have an original signature and can be sent by mail to the Culture Committee, handed in directly at the Studentenwerk Leipzig offices or inserted into the Studentenwerk Leipzig mailbox situated at Goethestraße 6.

Submitting applications by e-mail is not possible.

Show details

You can apply for relatively small amounts (from 50.00 EUR), but under certain conditions very large projects can also be funded with amounts of over 1,000 EUR. In any case, applicants should contact us early in order to clarify the financial possibilities.

In any case, however, a maximum of 49 percent of the total costs of a project can be funded.

Show details

After the project, you have to make an accounting appointment with Studentenwerk Leipzig and prove a deficit on the basis of a complete calculation of revenues and expenditures. Only then, and not in advance, the funding can be transferred – up to the maximum amount of the deficit.

Advance payments are unfortunately not possible!
