The digital application assistant "BAföG Digital" will be launched in the state of Brandenburg on May 18. The new tool was developed as part of the implementation of the nationwide Online Access Act (OZG). With "BAföG Digital", the digital application process, which has been possible since 2016, has been significantly improved ,standardized and been designed. From October 2020 to the end of April 2021, "BAföG Digital" was successfully tested in a six-month pilot phase in Sachsen-Anhalt, Rheinland-Pfalz, Berlin, Hessen and Nord-Rhein-Westfalen. Brandenburg, Thüringen, Saarland and Hamburg are now the next German states to launch.
