Information for professors, lecturers and instructors: Application for study trips

What does the PROMOS scholarship support?

Starting in 2025, only excursions outside of Europe/outside the Erasmus+ programme countries can be funded through PROMOS. If you are planning a stay in an Erasmus+ partner/programme country, please contact us about funding opportunities via Erasmus+ Blended Mobility at:

Study trips by groups of JLU students and/or doctoral candidates for as long as 12 days abroad. In addition, one university lecturer can be supported as an accompanying person.

The grant amounts to a daily allowance of € 45 per person.

An internal selection committee of the International Office decides on the allocation of the funds in a quality-controlled selection process. The selection committee will decide on the amount of funding for study trips depending on the quality and number of applications.

The PROMOS programme supports, among other things, the expansion and further development of existing cooperations. For this reason, study trips to partner universities and the involvement of partner institutions are given special consideration.
