DISCOVER THE WORLD WITH A PROMOS SCHOLARSHIP

Are you planning a non-curricular stay abroad outside the EU? The PROMOS scholarship makes your study or internship abroad possible. Study trips or final theses abroad are also on option. With the PROMOS funding provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Hochschule Fresenius has created its own scholarship program with funding priorities. This program will increase your student mobility. Generally speaking, the PROMOS program supports stays abroad outside the EU.

FUNDING – WHAT CAN BE FUNDED?

  • Minimum stay of three months
  • Partial scholarship or travel allowance (a selection committee decides on the type and duration of funding)
  • Preference is given to individual mobility
  • The study visit must take place outside Europe or at a European university that is not an Erasmus partner university
  • Unfortunately, tuition fees cannot be covered
  • Minimum stay of two months
  • Partial scholarship or travel allowance (a selection committee decides on the type and duration of funding)
  • The internship stay must take place outside Europe (all EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey are excluded from funding)
  • Exceptionally, internships can also be funded in the period between the Bachelor’s degree and the start of the Master’s program. The prerequisite here is that admission to the Master’s program has been granted.
  • Minimum stay of three months
  • Partial scholarship or travel allowance (a selection committee decides on the type and duration of funding)
  • The stay for writing the thesis must take place outside Europe or at a European university that is not an Erasmus partner university.
  • Group trips with a number of participants of 5 to 15 students and a duration of 5 to 12 days (must be accompanied by a university lecturer)
  • Trips with a predominantly touristic program as well as lecture and congress trips are not supported.

REQUIREMENTS – WHO CAN RECEIVE A PROMOS SCHOLARSHIP?

Enrolled Students of Hochschule Fresenius, who aim to graduate there, can apply for a PROMOS scholarship. However, scholarships to the home country are excluded in the case of non-German students.

The selection for a scholarship is made on the basis of the documents submitted. Decisive criteria for the selection of the scholarship holders are, among others, the academic performance, the meaningfulness of the stay abroad and the necessary language skills. In the case of equal suitability, preference will be given to applicants who do not receive remuneration from the host institution. Preference will also be given to those who have not received previous PROMOS funding.

By accepting a PROMOS scholarship, you agree to write an experience report after your stay abroad.

APPLICATION – HOW TO APPLY?

It is possible to apply for a PROMOS scholarship in the second semester at the earliest. The following application deadlines apply:

  • January 15

Please submit your PROMOS scholarship application in hard copy with the following documents:

  • Depending on which program you are applying for, you may need to submit additional documents or conduct a selection interview
