Eligibility of grants from adult education institutions

Adult and further education institutions within the meaning of the Lower Saxony Adult Education Act are basically free in their education, the independent design of their offer and the selection of staff. Adult education centres, state institutions and adult education centres have the option of being recognised for receiving financial aid from the state. Grant eligibility does not imply general government permission or recognition.

Process flow

Before you submit an application for recognition of financial aid eligibility, you should check for yourself whether you meet the requirements of § 3 NEBG as an adult education centre, state institution or home adult education centre. If this is the case, we recommend that you seek advice from the Lower Saxony Agency for Adult and Continuing Education. Here you will also find all the information regarding the evidence and documents to be provided.
