PROMOS: Internship or Study Trip Abroad

PROMOS is a scholarship programme granted by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Wissenschaft (BMBF) and launched by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Ruhr-Universität Bochum administers its PROMOS funds on behalf of the DAAD and awards scholarships to students who plan to study, intern or research abroad for up to six months. Thus, the above mentioned institutions contribute to the increasing mobility of students that was originally initiated by the Bologna Process.

All full-time students enrolled on one of RUB's degree programmes (Bachelor, Master, Diplom, Magister and Staatsexamen) are eligible to receive PROMOS (Student Mobility Support Programme) funding. Applicants need to be either German citizens or persons who are on a par with Germans according to § 8 Absatz 1 Ziffer 2 ff., Absatz 2, 2a und 3 BAföG. International degree-seeking students enrolled at RUB can be funded in all subprogrammes, as long as they do not intend to stay in their home country. Doctoral students may only participate in the subprogramme "Study Trips Worldwide".
