PROMOS Scholarship

Outside the "ERASMUS zone", semester scholarships and scholarships for internships are awarded within the framework of PROMOS (former DAAD short-term scholarships).

Within the framework of the programme line "Theses", funding is provided to all countries (including Europe).

The monthly scholarship rate is about 300,- €, for a few countries like the USA there are about 400,- €.

In addition, a flat-rate travel allowance is paid, which ranges from 150,- € for neighbouring European countries to 1950,- € for Central America. On average, a scholarship amounts to approx. 1800,- €. The minimum stay is 1 month for theses, 1.5 months for internships and 3 months for semester scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded by a selection committee. Applications must be submitted by the application deadlines.
