If your parents live in Austria, they can be eligible for ‘family allowance’ (Familienbeihilfe) up to the students’ age of 24. In addition to this, international students from EU/EEA countries with a low family-income can apply for a study grant.
Within the university there are numerous possibilities for financial support during your studies. For example, funding may be awarded for outstanding academic achievements and there are some research scholarships available for academic projects.
