PROMOS Scholarship

The DAAD PROMOS scholarship provides funding for up to six months for a stay abroad (once per degree). Funding of up to 550 euros is awarded. However, the amount depends on the funding rate for the host country.

Student Mobility & International Students (INT SB) awards PROMOS scholarships for

  • Theses to be undertaken at a foreign university outside of Europe, or at a company, if a supervisor can be provided at the host university (stays of 1-6 months)
  • Semester scholarships for independently organized stays abroad (Free Mover/Visiting Student) outside of Europe (stays of 2-6 months). Students participating in our exchange programs cannot receive PROMOS funding!
  • Participation in language and short courses or (Summer and Winter Schools) at TU Berlin partner universities (stays of 3-6 weeks; min. 25 hours per week) in Europe as well as overseas
