Application for an illness grant

Apply for ordinary support first

You must be in an educational programme that entitles you to loans and grants. 

Apply for ordinary support before you submit this application

How to apply

  1. Download and print the application - see bottom of page.
  2. Fill in the form and get a stamp and signature from your doctor or someone else who has the right to issue out a sick note.
  3. Log in and go to the page Apply for grants and loans via the menu.
  4. Upload and submit the application.

Apply when you recover

As a rule, we don’t provide illness grants forward in time. You must therefore wait until you have recovered or until the academic year is over before applying.

Lånekassen must receive your application for an illness grant within six months after the end of the academic year or the course.

Assessment time

Your case will be processed by a Case Officer and you should expect it to take some time before you receive an answer.
