The University itself offers financial support for students and PhD candidates with children such as Reimbursement for Childcare Expenses, Baby Welcome Money and Bridging Scholarships and Degree Completion Scholarships for PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers.

Furthermore the German state offers financial support for parents such as Maternity Allowance for women working in Germany, Parental Allowance and Child Benefit.
