SRH Hochschule der populären Künste (hdpk) awards PROMOS scholarships for studying or interning outside of Europe as well as for excursions and competitions trips. The rates are the usual allowances as set by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
PROMOS is for students who are matriculated at least in their second semester and aim at a degree from SRH. This includes our international students; however, stays in a student's home country are not eligible, unfortunately, even if a study trip, for instance, is mandatory. The scholarships are allocated by a qualitative selection procedure, but there is no entitlement to a scholarship.
The funding for PROMOS is provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and administered by the DAAD. The programme is aimed at rising the numbers of students, whose international project or destination cannot not be covered by ERASMUS or any other DAAD-scholarship.The German higher education institutions are allocated a Budget according to student numbers and can issue the scholarships autonomously.
Application deadlines for PROMOS scholarships at SRH are February 28th, April 30th, June 30th, August 31st, and October 31st 2019.
