Financial support

Financial support for attendance at school events

We do not want to exclude any child due to financial difficulties!

School events, such as skiing, sports or culture weeks are very special and important happenings in everyone’s school experience. They give you a change, fun and also help you to develop social, cultural and sportive skills. However, for some families they might cause big financial burden. Therefore there are several sponsorships offered by the department of family and generation. For more information check out the latest issue of “Salzburger Familienjournal”, which is published by the department of culture, society and generations.
You can request 220 Euro maximum for one child in one calendar year. All school activities of all school types for families whose principal residence is Salzburg (city or county) are supported. The sponsorship may be passed in gradually.

The income limit for families with one child is 1.454,92 € (net, without any child or family benefits) and additionally 447,67 € for every further child that lives in the same household. The income limit for single parents with one child is 1.119,16 € (net, without any child or family benefits) and additionally 447,67 € for every further child that lives in the same household.
Requests for school events in 2010 are due at latest December 30th, 2010. All sponsorships are taken per calendar year, so you can still claim sponsorships until December 30th, 2010 for past school events.
