Special funding for participants with disabilities and for students with children is available in ERASMUS upon prior notification to the International Office (Mrs. Kilb: andrea.kilb@haw-landshut.de).

For special funding in case of disability, you can also obtain useful information about the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education: www.european-agency.org.

Special funding for students with children as a lump sum: Students who take their child/children with them to an ERASMUS+ study visit in a programme country and are single parents there during the ERASMUS+ mobility period can receive special funding as a lump sum. The maximum monthly funding amount is determined by the country groups.

PROMOS (outside Europe)

Students whose study or internship abroad cannot be covered by the ERASMUS programme have the possibility to submit a PROMOS application. This programme can be used to support study and practical training periods as well as short stays such as language courses and summer schools of students worldwide by means of partial scholarships, flat-rate travel expenses and course fees.

Please submit your application to the International Office.

Bavarian State Ministry

In order to promote the internationalization of Bavarian universities and the mobility of students, the Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Culture, Science and Arts has made available funding for internships and study abroad, which can be granted upon application by outgoing students (as an alternative to PROMOS or ERASMUS) or foreign students (incoming students).

The respective funding depends on the total amount of funding provided annually to Landshut University of Applied Sciences and can therefore vary considerably.

Please submit your applications to the International Office. You can download the form here: Application for Internship Abroad
