Bridging assistance for students starts again on 20.11.
So we, the Studentenwerk Vorderpfalz, are there for you again when you run out of money to live on because of the Corona pandemic and the closures in the second wave.
But only for all students of the universities in Landau, Ludwigshafen, Worms, Germersheim (Faculty 6) and Speyer.

Even with the resumption of the bridging aid, you will only receive money if you are in financial difficulty because of Corona.

We have already approved and disbursed over 900,000 € in the first four months and have gained a lot of experience. To ensure that your application is processed quickly and effectively, we ask you to include the following information with your application:
  • backed documents in the application tool complete, legible and with plausible information
  • make sure that especially your bank statements are complete and legible and that you give us the account from which you pay your living expenses (rent, insurance, student fees, GEZ, etc. pp). Best in chronological order in a PDF.
  • deposit only plausible documents for the corona-related loss of funds. Possible are:
  • - a plausible self-declaration for your corona-conditioned financial situation,
  • - a corona-caused termination of employment by an employer or
  • - at least two unsuccessful applications to a new employer
  • Please deposit all documents on the application tool under https://www.überbrü Documents sent to us by e-mail cannot be accepted.
  • The processing of applications has taken about 4 weeks in the past. Since we cannot currently predict how many applications will be submitted, we ask you to allow us at least this processing time.

So, that was a bit formal, but in the end it helps us all if you keep the above points in mind. We have to ask less and you will get your money faster. And that's what a relief fund is all about, right?

For general questions you can reach the administration of the Studierendenwerk best via the mail address But please refrain from asking about the status of your application.

We look forward to being able to help you again.
