Study abroad

DAAD PROMOS travel grants (MPP and MIA)

About the programme

The programme was established in 2010 replacing the FMS Programme (Freemover Scholarships) of the DAAD. The former FMS Programme and current PROMOS Programme share the objective to increase the international mobility of students in Germany. PROMOS is financed by Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research.


All MPP and MIA students completing an exchange (max. 6 months) or internship abroad (min. 6 weeks; max. 6 months) between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2019 are eligible to apply. 

The region you plan to visit must not be an Erasmus+ programme country and there must not be a travel and security warning from the Federal Foreign Office for your travel destination. Moreover, you must not receive a scholarship from one of the large German foundations (“Begabtenförderungswerke”) or the DAAD for your stay abroad. 


Please submit your application via MyStudies by 29 April23:59 CEST.

Please also find the country-specific funding rates here. Due to limited funding being allocated to us, we will only be able to offer travel grants (“Reisekostenpauschale”) or partial stipends (“Teilstipendienrate”) to a limited number of students. The exact grant amount will be communicated to you if your application was successful. A selection committee consisting of a member of Curricular Affairs, Career Development and Student Affairs & Study Abroad will select the grant recipients based on the following two criteria:

  • Academic performance / current GPA (50 %)
  • Your motivation for the stay abroad and its relevance for your personal, academic and/or professional development (50 %)
