Scholarships and other support programs

Financing

When choosing a place to study abroad, the costs play a decisive role. Abroad, most colleges require significant tuition. However, through the exchange programs with partner universities, enrolled Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences students are mostly exempted. In addition, travel costs and, in some cases, higher living costs are incurred abroad. For overseas stays, visa fees and extra health insurance costs must also be budgeted.



During your studies abroad, you will not have the time or opportunity to earn money. Therefore, you calculate the costs realistically and over the full period of the planned stay abroad.

You can finance your study abroad from your own resources or apply for financial support under certain conditions:

For worldwide study visits (outside the ERASMUS participating countries) partial scholarships can be awarded to Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences students from the PROMOS program funded by the DAAD. Information and documents for the PROMOS application can be found here.



Experience reports of interns with PROMOS funding can be found here.

The Fulbright Commission awards annual and travel scholarships to deepen and complement the study program at an American university and to meet the US.

The DAAD provides comprehensive information on studying abroad (in German).

In the DAAD Scholarship Database you can search specifically for scholarships for your profile (field of study, destination country, status).

Regardless of whether you receive domestic BAföG, you can apply for the (abroad-) Auslands-BAföG. Due to the higher costs of a stay abroad, persons who do not receive a domestic BAföG can also be eligible. Depending on the destination country, the responsible zentrale Ämter for applying might differ .

To support students, a short-term, low-interest loan for educational purposes is offered as part of the Bildungskredit programs.
