Information on the 200 EUR one-off energy price allowance at FAU
Apply from March 15, 2023 via campo
Students can apply for the one-off 200 EUR energy price allowance from March 15. It is available to all students who were enrolled at a German institute of higher education on the cut-off date of December 1, 2022 and who had their domicile or habitual residence in Germany on that date. Students must submit their online application by September 30, 2023 at the latest.
There are three steps you need to follow to apply for the energy allowance:
Step 1: Set up a BundID user account
All students entitled to the energy allowance need to set up a BundID user account. Without this account, you cannot apply.
There are two types of BundID user account:
- with a high assurance level (= 1st option)
In this instance, you have to provide proof of identity using the online identification function of your new ID card or electronic residence permit, European eID or a personal ELSTER certificate -> All you now need to apply is the access code that you receive in step 2.
- with a low assurance level (= 2nd option)
In this case, you register with a user name and a password -> in order to apply, you require both the access code and the additional PIN number that you will receive in step 2.
Step 2: Access authentication data via campo
We have generated a list of all students enrolled on the cut-off date of December 1, 2022 who are in principle entitled to the allowance and have forwarded this securely in an encrypted form to the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts (StMWK), which is the central office responsible for processing applications.
We can only provide our students the individual authentication data required in order to submit an application via the central web portal once the StMWK has approved the list. This will be the case as of March 15, 2023, and your individual authentication data will be available via campo from then on. First of all, you need to log in to campo. The access code you require will be provided directly on your landing page via a portlet. You can retrieve the additional PIN (personal identification number) in the portlet if required.
Depending on which of the two options for a BundID user account described above you chose in the first step, in order to submit an application successfully to the central web portal you require either
- only the access code (1st option) or
- the access code and a PIN number (2nd option)
Step 3: Apply for 200 EUR one-off energy price allowance
Students are responsible for applying for the one-off energy price allowance themselves. Applications must be submitted with the central web portal www.einmalzahlung200.de. There is no other option for applying.
Applications must be submitted by September 30, 2023 (final deadline).
Further information on the one-off energy price allowance is available in the central FAQs on the one-off energy price allowance for students as well as on the website of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Who can apply?
Only students who had their domicile or habitual residence in the Federal Republic of Germany on the cut-off date of December 1, 2022 are entitled to apply. This means that students living abroad on this date are unfortunately not able to apply.
