Rotary scholarships for exchange students from Eastern Europe

Due to the Corona crisis and the travel restrictions, it is currently not possible to make a definite statement about your planned stay in Oldenburg. As far as the situation allows, we would of course like to continue to support you in your mobility project. Please feel free to send us your application and we will keep you up to date on further developments.

The International Office is pleased to offer scholarships, funded by the Rotary Foundation Oldenburg-Ammerland e.V. and the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD, to prospective exchange students from our Eastern European partner universities.

The scholarships run for two semesters, starting in October 2021. Eligible applicants will receive a monthly stipend of EUR 700 to 800 (depending on the academic level).
