PROMOS Programme to increase mobility of German students
PROMOS is a mobility programme funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) which finances short-term (up to six-month) study visits abroad for German students. Students enrolled at the University of Münster can apply directly to the University for financial support to finance certain study-related projects abroad. In addition to German students or those considered equivalent in accordance with § 8 BAföG, non-German students and graduates can now apply for PROMOS funding as well, provided that they are enrolled in a degree programme at a German university and intend to earn their degree or pursue a doctorate at a German university. The new rule is valid for a two-year trial phase. Visits to one’s home country are excluded from funding. Applications for short-term or one-year scholarships for doctoral candidates and one-year scholarships for students should be submitted directly to the DAAD.
PROMOS scholarship recipients are selected by their respective faculties. All application documents must be submitted to the International Office of the University of Münster by the following deadlines:
- 15 October for projects scheduled to commence between January and June of the following year
- 15 April for projects scheduled to commence between July and December of the following year
Visit the website of the International Office for more information on the required application documents.
Please note that your application documents must be submitted in a single PDF file, otherwise your application will be not be considered.
The Dean’s Office, the PROMOS representative and a member of the faculty board are responsible for selecting scholarship holders in the Faculty of Music.
Master courses abroad and international competitions are eligible for PROMOS funding with corresponding proof of participation.
Preference is given to those who wish to participate in master courses during the lecture-free period with instructors who are not members of the Faculty of Music (FB 15) of the University of Münster.
