    Get College Funds is sponsored by the Oregon Student Assistance Commission. It is a non-commercial site.

    That is a nice gesture on everybody’s part – keep it up.

    Hello,
    can anyone tell me if there is a financial aid system for students in US like the BAföG system in germany or something as this?
    Thanks Victor

  5. If I understood what that said I might be able to answer that question :)

  6. Thomas says:

    In the USA there´s nothing like the german BAföG System. The most important is the Pell scholarship. This covers depending upon University of 9-23% of the costs. By all costs in the USA in approximately 25% by scholarships are covered. The fees are very different and depend also on whether a student comes from the respective Federal State (with staatl. Universities) or not and above all of it whether it concerns a national or a purely private university. They lie between 6000 and 30,000 USD.

  7. Kreditkarten says:

    As well as in the US also studentes in Germany will have to take care for their financial aid during their studies. They have to work next to their college or university efforts or try to receive a kredit via scolarship of an industry company or else.

  8. Well,in germany it’s way harder to get a scholarship or something like that since we don’t have that many institutes or private “investors”.

  9. Tagesgeld says:

    Well – that´s not true. Here in germany we _do_ have lot´s of institutes providing scholarships. Problem is: they have high borders for students to receive a scholarship.

  10. So high aren´t the borders in Germany. I received a scholar and it was really easy.

  11. Test says:

    But you have to pay back about the half from the Bafög you got when you are in job I think.

    So it`s not always totally a precent, but of course even a little subsidy is great.

  12. No, you have to pay pack half of Bafög after studying in order to get better rates.

  13. But in the U.S. there is nothing similar to the German Bafög.

  14. Love Oregon. Just a great place to be!
