The federal aid for students in Austria was introduced in the 60s as an accompanying measurement towards the opening of the universities to also make it possible for children from low-income families to start an academic career. Since 1992 the study financing has been more and more linked to the other (indirect) federal aid measures and the conditions of entitlement have been harmonised step by step.
The federal aid measures of Austrian study financing can systematically be divided into two sections: transfer payments, which students receive directly in cash (direct study financing), and expenses which the student benefits from either by transfer payments to the students’ parents or non-cash benefits (indirect study financing).
