Combined study and practice stays for engineers from developing countries (KOSPIE)

With this scholarship programme, the DAAD promotes the study stay and internship of young students, especially in engineering and natural sciences, from selected developing and emerging countries in Germany.

Programme content

The Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) acts as a host university for students granted regional DAAD funding from Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. The Young Engineers Programme combines a one-semester study stay and an internship with a top local company lasting several months. Every year, the RUB organises an extensive accompanying programme for its KOSPIE students.

With KOSPIE to the Ruhr University Bochum

Students from participating countries can find out from the DAAD or their home university whether and how they can apply. Applications for the KOSPIE programmes are always made via the DAAD application portal and not directly with the intended host university.
