PROMOS for Studying

Apply for a scholarship to study abroad in a European or non-European country. For study stays in other European countries, the following applies: Funding by PROMOS is possible if ERASMUS funding is excluded. Please make a note of this in your application, if applicable, and submit the relevant supporting documents.

Study abroad is supported for between three and six months. The selection committee reserves the right to individually determine the duration of funding according to the available funds in order to be able to support more students. Should PROMOS funds become available at a later date, students can be subsequently sponsored according to their ranking.

The monthly scholarship rates are between 300-500 € per month depending on the destination country, a flat-rate travel allowance may be granted at a later date. The payment will be made in two instalments shortly after the beginning of the stay and after the end of the stay. The subsidies are as set by the DAAD for PROMOS.
