Scholarships for a study period in Germany

Apart from full scholarships for participation in one of the above mentioned programmes a number of mobility scholarships for Master students are available each year.

These scholarships are aimed at funding a study period in Germany. During such a study period abroad scholarship holders can participate in a Summer School at Ruhr-Univeristy Bochum, complete an internship with a German organization working in the field related to their studies or they can visit Ruhr-Univeristy Bochum during the completion phase of their Master Thesis for intensive supervision periods.

It is not necessary to apply for mobility scholarships before starting your studies. The application procedure for mobility scholarships will instead be announced to participants of the cooperating programmes.

For further questions, the CRD coordinators at UWC or RUB can be contacted.
