The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Support Fund helps students of the dormitory who are worthy of support. Financially needy, particularly determined and/or socially committed students are supported. Together with sponsors, which for many years have included banks, the regional government of Upper Austria, the city of Linz, the ESH board and private individuals, the ESH board has been awarding the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Support Fund annually since 1995.
The window for online applications is usually from October to November. In a joint ceremony in January, the supports are handed over to the students.
