The Reverse Generational Contract

FREEDOM THROUGH SOLIDARITY

The Reverse Generational Contract allows you to focus on your studies, while Chancen eG takes care of your tuition fees. Your commitment to the community ensures that future generations have the same opportunities. Once you are employed and you earn above the minimum income threshold, your income based repayments will fund the education of current students.

The repayments are based on your income, meaning that individuals pay a set percentage of their income to Chancen eG. We ensure that your individual needs and opportunities are met. In contrast to standard debt, you do not face a high risk of over-indebting yourself or being restricted by rigid repayment plans. The model allows you to freely structure your career path.

The Fundamental Values of the Reverse Generational Contract

Fair. Equal. Together.

Study

Chancen eG takes care of tuition fees so students can focus on their studies. Giving students the freedom to choose a suitable degree and university that best suits their dreams.

Repayment

Contrary to regular loans, graduates repayments are income based. You do not have a fixed amount of debt but rather a repayment plan that is tailored to suite your individual financial capabilities.

Income Threshold

Repayment only commences once a graduate is earning above the minimum income threshold of 21.000 Euros (net). This ensures that the repayment plan only starts once a graduate can really afford it.

Capped

The repayment value is capped and ends automatically should the maximum amount be reached. A high income does not mean that the repayments are excessively high.

The Reverse Generational Contract in Reality

    LAURA, 27

    Assistant Doctor


    I already knew that I wanted to be a doctor when I was a child. Due to the heavy workload of my studies, I was not able to pursue a part-time job to cover my tuition fees. So I opted for the Reverse Generational Contract. I no longer had this massive financial burden from my tuition fees and could focus on my studies. When I graduated, I immediately found a job as an Assistant Doctor. My income exceeded the minimum threshold and I started repaying my tuition fees to the community. After ten years of repayment my obligations to Chancen eG will end.

    Entrepreneur


    I financed my business degree with the Reverse Generational Contract. After I graduated I fulfilled my dream and spent a year travelling through South East Asia. During this time I did not have a regular income and was not obliged to payback my tuition fees. Once I was back in Germany I completed a traineeship and was consequently hired by the company. I then started my repayments as my income was above the minimum threshold. I am considering quitting my job and founding a start-up with a colleague. Initially, my income will be very low but with the Reverse Generational Contract it is not problematic as i will fall below the minimum income threshold. Once my business is successful I can continue my repayments to Chancen eG.

HOW DOES THE REVERSE GENERATIONAL CONTRACT WORK?

The Reverse Generational Contract is dependent on a commitment by all members of the community, united in their striving for equal opportunities. Some graduates will repay a smaller amounts in relation to the contribution from Chancen eG. Because the repayment is income dependent, other graduates may make larger repayments. These differences in repayment amounts are balanced out by the solidarity nature of the community. The risk of the RGC is never carried by one person, rather by the community as a whole.

THE ADVANTAGES, IN COMPARISON TO REGULAR CREDIT

Fair financing offers a great advantage in comparison to regular credit institutions. With a regular loan, borrowers have fixed debt. The high-interest rates and the repayment plans are not income based. In this case, borrowers also have the risk that their repayments will not be relative to their income. A loan is restrictive, it does not take into consideration extended study periods, parental leave or start-up phases for entrepreneurs. The Reverse Generational Contract always adapts to your current income and assesses individual circumstances. We give you the freedom to shape your career.
