Grants from the TU Ilmenau within the Framework of University Partnerships

The International Office allocates funds for study visits of students of the Technical University of Ilmenau for study and research purposes to foreign partner institutions on which a partnership agreement (university, faculty or institute agreement – see list of university partnerships [partially only available in German]) is based.

This call for applications is subject to the condition that the funds are made available to the International Office for study visits by students to partner universities of the Technical University of Ilmenau in the current financial year.

Grants are selected and approved by a commission of the International Office on behalf of the rector.
For further information please contact Ms. Franziska Rau.

The selection will take place within 1 – 1.5 months after the application deadline and will be communicated to the candidates depending on the availability of funds.
Applicants for the summer semester may submit their applications from applicants who start in January of the current year, but must submit their application at least 1 month BEFORE the start of their stay, but must have submitted those for the semester abroad.
