Is it true that I do not have to repay my study grant for a given academic year if I cancel my study grant in February?

If you cancel your study grant before 1 February, your study grant is automatically changed into a gift. There are, however, conditions to this change, namely that the year in question is the first year that you have received a study grant and that you will not be receiving a study grant for the rest of that year. You can only make use of this regulation once and the months up to February in which you did receive a study grant do count as months of your performance-related scholarship and/or study grant that you have used up.
