A PROMOS scholarship consists of a combination of three possible funding components:
Please be aware that the PROMOS scholarship may consist of one or more of the above mentioned components. A legal claim to one or more components of the scholarship is not possible. A list with current scholarship funding rates can be found here.
The various components of the PROMOS scholarship can be combined with each other, however the total funding period may not exceed six months for one study level (BA, MA, PhD).
Candidates already receiving a scholarship financed by German public funds are not eligible for a PROMOS grant. Examples include the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Friedrich Ebert Foundation, etc.). If you are awarded a PROMOS scholarship, you are required to notify this to other German scholarship providers. Likewise, PROMOS scholarships are to be reported to the BAföG offices.
Financial support is only awarded if there is no travel warnings are issued for the host country from the German Foreign Ministry.
The Ernst Reuter society offers further scholarships to students of the FU Berlin. These are generally intended for trips that are not financially covered/promoted from PROMOS. Please find further information here.
In addition, the DAAD created a database which gives students the opportunity to search for matching scholarship opportunities. In individual cases, PhD research stays can be supported via the CIC funding program. Doctoral candidates can only apply via their supervisors in the PhD project.
