With PROMOS-Scholarships into the colourful world ...

Lobster buoys in Maine, USA

The mobility programme of the DAAD funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports short-term stays abroad worldwide. PROMOS should make an important contribution to enhancing the mobility of students.

German and the German equivalent students who are fully matriculated at Kiel University at least in the 2nd semester and have sufficient language skills in the language of instruction can apply for PROMOS. Also non-German students can apply if they are enrolled in a degree programme at a German university with the aim to reach their final at the German university. Stays in countries of origin are excluded.

The grants are awarded directly by Kiel University through a quality-based selection process.

The amount of the grant rate and the travel costs are determined by the DAAD.

The PROMOS / DAAD application workshop on 3rd May unfortunately has to be canceled - due to scheduling reasons no replacement date can be offered. In case of any questions please contact us directly.
