Since DAAD leaves determining the modalities for each program line up to the individual universities (within certain framework conditions), we request that you refrain from contacting DAAD and contact the International Office instead. The various scholarship options are described on the DAAD homepage. However, for Freiburg students, the University of Freiburg's announcement regarding the PROMOS scholarships is legally binding. Please note that in 2023, not all PROMOS scholarship options described by the DAAD will be offered by the University of Freiburg and that the application modalities are determined individually by each university taking DAAD’s guidelines into account.
