Every place for a stay abroad is automatically linked to a scholarship. That means that under HERMES you simultaneously apply for a place at the host university and a scholarship. The scholarship covers flights, visa costs, insurance (health, accident and third-party liability) and a monthly subsistence allowance of 1,000 Euro (undergraduate and graduate students), 1,500 Euro (PhD students), 1,800 Euro (post-doctoral students), or up to 2,500 Euro (academics and staff, depending on qualifications). There are no tuition fees for your study or research stay at a HERMES partner university.

Please note that your flight tickets and insurance will be booked for you centrally via the project. Any flights booked or insurances purchased on your own initiative will not be reimbursed! Naturally the flight dates will be decided in consultation with the scholarship holder.

Attention: During the current, last call for applications there will only be grants for research stays for PhD-students
