It offers opportunities for individual mobility of visiting students, doctoral candidates, and staff, and provides generous financial support. In addition to the monthly scholarship, travel expenses for the round trip are covered for all scholarship holders. For the duration of the study or research stay abroad, scholarship holders also do not need to pay any fees at their host university.
