Private primary and secondary schools; application for a subsidy for staff costs

Private primary and secondary schools approved by the school authorities receive state funding upon application by the school authority. Flat-rate grants are awarded for the necessary staff costs.



Among other things:

  • Proof of the non-profit status of the school authority (Art. 29 Para. 2 BaySchFG)
  • Existence of a school supervisory approval of the school according to Art. 92 ff. BayEUG
  • Ensuring the economic and legal status of the teaching staff in accordance with Art. 97 Para. 1 BayEUG (see Art. 29 Para. 3 BaySchFG)


The Bavarian State Office for Schools processes the lump-sum payments for the necessary personnel expenses centrally.

Special notes

Alternative schools may only be established and operated with state approval. The application for approval must be submitted to the school supervisory authority with all the necessary documents at least four months before the start of the school year (for further information, see "Related topics"). If you intend to establish a school or apply for state funding, please contact your local government as early as possible to avoid errors or deficiencies in the application process.
