The Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences awards partial scholarships for stays abroad with funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the DAAD Partial scholarships for stays abroad. These are awarded on the basis of academic qualification and personal suitability. The monthly funding rates are predetermined and depend on the country.

Target group

Regularly enrolled students at German universities can apply if they:

  • Have German citizenship OR
  • Are treated the same as Germanys in accordance with § 8 paragraph 1 clauses 2 ff., paragraph 2, 2a and 3 BAföG OR
  • Are enrolled as non-German students in a degree programme at a German university with the aim of obtaining the degree at the German university.

For non-German citizens, stays in the home country are excluded. The home country is the country in which the student has predominantly resided for at least five years.



Subject to the allocation of funds by the DAAD, partial scholarships for a maximum of 3 months are offered for the following stays abroad, which are recognised as part of the respective Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes:

  • Partial scholarship for studies abroad
  • Partial scholarship for practical semester/internship outside of Europe*
  • Partial scholarship for final dissertation
  • Short stay, e.g. Summer School (flat-rate funding of €400 each for a maximum of 5 students per group registered by a professor at the H-BRS)

Benefits from other scholarship providers may be offset against the scholarship. Internships for which specific internship programmes of the DAAD, e.g. HAW, are used must not be additionally funded by PROMOS.

Funding is only possible once per study cycle.

The monthly funding amount depends on the country (see funding rates table).
