There are several funding options for your stay abroad. Depending on what you decide to do, you can, e.g., get funding via Erasmus+ for your semester abroad at one of our Erasmus partner universities, or you can get Erasmus+ funding for your internship. Here are some more options:
- The DAAD has compiled a list of ideas and options here: https://eu.daad.de/infos-fuer-einzelpersonen/foerderung-fuer-studierende-und-graduierte/de/
- International Office has more information on many of these and other available options here: https://www.uni-saarland.de/international/out/studium/finanzierung.html
- Auslandsbafög: https://www.bafög.de/bafoeg/de/das-bafoeg-alle-infos-auf-einen-blick/einzelfragen-der-foerderung/gibt-es-bafoeg-auch-im-ausland/gibt-es-bafoeg-auch-im-ausland.html
