Energy price allowance for students


The statutory deadline to apply for an Energy price allowance for students has expired on September 30, 2023. It is therefore no longer possible to submit an application.

Who is eligible?

You must meet four requirements:

  1. You must have been enrolled on 1 December 2022.
  2. You must have been a resident of Germany on 1 December 2022.
  3. You must submit an application for payment.
  4. You must have a „BundID“ in order to submit the application.


How does it work?

This is how you submit the application

Start your application by accessing the page

For the further procedure of the application it is important whether you already have a "BundID" and whether you are currently still enrolled at the university.

If you already have a "BundID", you can use it to register for the application. In addition, you only need an access code, which will be made available to you in the KIS portal of TH OWL from March 15.

Note: Please do not use any language translation software for the KIS portal website, as this will falsify the access code and PIN and thus mark them as incorrect when submitting the application!

When will the payment be made?


As a university, we are unfortunately not able to provide you with any information regarding the payment date. With up to 3.5 million applications expected nationwide, payment may take several days. If you have any questions, please contact the federal government's information hotline at +49 800 2623 003.
