Saarland University is evolving into a multilingual university with strong ties across Europe and throughout the world. This process is being driven by the commitment of those who see internationality as a core component of their day-to-day work and who foster and support the further internationalization of the university through their international teaching and research activities and through innovative transnational projects and services.
The Internationalization Fund has been created by Saarland University as an instrument to encourage and support these internationalization initiatives. The Senate's Internationalization Committee, which is chaired by the Vice-President for Internationalization and European Relations, can provide funding for internationalization projects in three main funding categories:
To be eligible for funding, projects must be in line with Saarland University's internationalization objectives (currently available in German only).
