PROMOS Selection Process



The scholarships are awarded based on a quality-oriented selection process, taking into account academic qualification and personal suitability.

Upon submission, the application documents will be checked first for completeness and subsequently evaluated. There are at least two reviewers evaluating the documents using a standardized evaluation form. Key categories for the evaluation of the documents are your grades and, if applicable, letter of recommendation, language skills, the quality of your letter of motivation, and how important the stays abroad is for your studies and your future career. Moreover, the completeness of your documents and your extracurricular activities will be evaluated as well.

In the case of a longer (>10 weeks) and therefore a costlier scholarship, depending on the amount and quality of applications, you may be invited to a selection interview. If this is the case, you will be informed in the course of the selection process by email.

The selection process lasts about 2 months, starting after the application deadline. After that you will be informed of the selection committee's decision. Once you receive news that your application was successful, you will have to sign a declaration of acceptance and send it to the International Office within 10 days.
