What is parental grant?
How much will I receive each month?
If you are a student in higher education, you will receive an amount that is the average of what you have received in the last four months before you went on leave. If you are a student in upper secondary school with statutory rights as a young person, you will receive a full parental grant even if you study part-time.
How to apply for a parental grant
You can only apply for a parental grant after the child is born. There is a separate application to which you will find a link on this page. Before you apply for a parental grant, you must have applied for ordinary loans and grants. To receive a parental grant you must either still be in education, be on leave from your studies, or hold a deferred offer to study.
For those attending upper secondary school or are an apprentice
How much you can receive in parental grant depends on two things. One is whether you receive social security and pension benefits or have an apprentice salary. The other is the income of your spouse or cohabitant if you have one. You may receive a reduced parental grant if this is the case. If you receive transitional benefits, you can only receive a parental grant if you are over 18 years of age. In this case, you will also receive a reduced grant amount.
