Scholarship abroad for more equal opportunities

As many students as possible should have the opportunity to go abroad. For this reason, TUM students who are nominated for TUMexchange can apply for an additional scholarship that is financed through Erasmus+. Equal opportunities are an important aspect of the selection procedure – considering personal and socio-economic factors, e.g. the cultural, social, or financial background, as well as exceptional circumstances within the family or with regard to the applicant’s individual mental or physical situation. How to apply for scholarship? Send your application to TUMexchange between October 19 and November 2, 2018. Attention: Whether or not a scholarship can be granted also depends on the respective partner university. All information can be found at Erasmus+ International Dimension
