A student stay abroad can be funded with a PROMOS partial scholarship for mobility and/or a PROMOS partial scholarship for the stay, depending on the destination country and the duration of the stay. The mobility grant is a one-time lump sum for travel expenses. Please note that the monthly PROMOS grants are only partial scholarships. In contrast to full scholarships, which completely finance a stay abroad, partial scholarships only cover the additional costs related to the stay abroad.
The funding rates apply to individual stays of RUB students (i.e. study abroad, internship, stay to prepare the final thesis).
- PROMOS funding for field trips
For field trips organised by RUB lecturers a daily rate of 45 euros per person applies. Further information for lecturers is available here.
- PROMOS total funding period
Basically, a student can receive PROMOS funding for a total of six months within an academic educational period ending with the achievement of a degree (e.g. Bachelor's, Master's, Diplom, Magister and Staatsexamens , but not a PhD). A combination of the funding measures study abroad, internship abroad and/or thesis abroad is possible.
For the participation in PROMOS field trips there is no limitation by a total funding period.
- Important information for students with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses
If, due to a disability and/or a chronic illness, additional expenses abroad are to be expected and other responsible authorities (e.g. social insurance agencies) have rejected additional financial support, an application for PROMOS special needs can be submitted to the DAAD. If you have any questions, please contact the RUB PROMOS team.
