Finance and funding

In Austria, there is a wide range of disability-related support with various funding agencies that provide financial as well as material and service support to students with disabilities. Since the funding possibilities differ greatly and are individual, we ask you to contact the respective offices personally. Please note that all information provided is without guarantee and claims to completeness.

Educational leave and part-time education - continuing education allowance from AMS

Regional offices of the Sozialministeriumservice (Ministry of Social Affairs)
inform about support possibilities and give individual advice.
