Babysitter allowance and emergency babysitter fund

Since the winter semester 2011/12, a babysitter allowance has been available for student parents studying at JLU Giessen. Financed with funds earmarked for ensuring teaching quality, the allowance helps to improve conditions for students with children. The allowance has so far been granted on application if a student requires additional childcare in order to attend a course, work part-time or prepare for an examination, and childcare requirements cannot be covered by regular childcare (day nursery, childminder, school, after-school centre).

Since the summer semester 2013, applicants must consult the Family Service Office before submitting an application. Applications that are not preceded by a consultation are not considered. The consultation is confirmed on the application (bottom of page 4) by the Family Service Office.

Details of the babysitter allowance, the application form and timesheet and the application form for the emergency babysitter fund can be downloaded by clicking on the links on the right.

Students at Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen are also eligible for the babysitter allowance. You will find more information at https://www.thm.de/frauen-gleichstellung/familiengerechte-hochschule/studierende/kinderbetreuungsmoeglichkeiten/babysitterzuschuss.html#antragsformulare.

If there is anything else you would like to know about the babysitter allowance or emergency babysitter fund, please contact the Family Service Office at Giessen Student Services / Studentenwerk Gießen A.d.ö.R..
