PROMOS Scholarship

PROMOS, the programme to increase the mobility of German students, is a scholarship programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

You can apply for a PROMOS scholarship if you are planning a stay outside of Europe or if no funding is possible in the Erasmus programme or if you do not have an Erasmus+ contract with a European university.

Important note: Your application does not guarantee that you will receive a PROMOS partial scholarship.
