Grants and subsidies

The Student Council supports our students with grants and subsidies. Below are some forms that can be used to apply for grants.



If you take part in excursions as part of courses, regardless of whether they are compulsory or optional subjects, you will receive a travel allowance from now on.
The amount of the allowance depends on the costs incurred and is determined individually.

How does it work?

  1. Print out form
  2. Have the participation confirmed by the signature of the lecturer.
  3. Come to the ÖH-Leoben front office with the completed form and the supporting documents (train ticket, etc.).


  • Submission of the application no later than four weeks after the excursion
  • Participation in the excursion
  • Enclosure of supporting documents
  • The Student Representation reserves the right to grant the amount of the subsidy depending on the costs.
