Because of the recognition of equivalence pursuant to the Federal Law on Educational Support (BAföG), it has been possible since October 1st, 2019, to apply for educational aid for the duration of the training at the European Flight Academy.
As a rule, every student registered with EFA at the training location in Germany is eligible to apply for educational aid. An application can be filed once the training agreement has been signed. The relevant documentation will be provided upon request following conclusion of the training agreement. If approved, educational aid will be provided starting with the month in which the training commences; at the earliest, however, with the month in which the application is filed.
For the time spent in the USA in the context of the training, an application for educational aid is to be filed with the competent international office, in this case the Studierendenwerk Hamburg – Amt für Ausbildungsförderung (Student Services – Office for Education Funding (BAföG-Amt).
