Electricity grant for the 2022 autumn semester
By autumn semester 2022, we mean the period from 16 August 2022 to 15 January 2023. The grant is disbursed once, it is not a monthly payment.
The grant is in addition to the ordinary electricity support that everyone with electricity expenses receives. Pupils at folk high schools are therefore not entitled to the grant.
You need to pay electricity separately to rent
Both students and pupils in Norway and abroad may be eligible for a grant. Part-time time students may apply for the grant.
Those whose electricity is included in their rent will not be eligible for the grant.
You may be eligible for the grant regardless of how much you pay for electricity
How much your electricity costs have increased does not matter. You may be eligible for the grant regardless of how much you pay. Further, it is not a requirement that you pay for electricity for the entire period from 16 August 2022 to 15 January 2023. It is sufficient that you, for example, have paid for electricity for one month only.
You can still receive the grant if you split electricity costs with someone else
The electricity supply contract does not need to be in your name, as long as you too contribute to paying the electricity bill.
If you are splitting the electricity costs with others, you still pay for electricity. However, if your rent has increased due to increased electricity prices, you are not eligible to the grant.
How much you earn and any assets you have will also not affect your eligibility for the electricity grant.
