PROMOS Scholarship

Are you planning an individual stay abroad outside the EU? The PROMOS scholarship makes it possible for you to study or do an internship abroad. Study trips or theses abroad are also possible. With the PROMOS funds provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Hochschule Fresenius has created its own scholarship program with funding priorities. Through the program, your student mobility is increased. The PROMOS program generally supports stays abroad outside the EU.

What is funded?

Who can receive a PROMOS scholarship?

Students of Hochschule Fresenius with German citizenship or citizenship equivalent to German citizenship can apply for a PROMOS scholarship. Non-German students who are enrolled at a German university and aim to graduate there can also apply for a PROMOS scholarship. However, this does not include funding to the home country.

The selection for a scholarship is made on the basis of the submitted documents. Decisive criteria for the selection of 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 a field report after your stay abroad.
