Prospective SPRING Students

Cost and Funding


The arising costs for the entire study differ depending on the respective second year SPRING partner university. A detailed compilation of costs and expenses can be downloaded here.

DAAD EPOS Scholarship

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers a limited number of scholarships to highly qualified applicants. The current call for applications and necessary application documents for the scholarship for an EPOS study program can be found on the DAAD's website.

The selection of qualified candidates is jointly taken by SPRING and DAAD.


Because admission to the SPRING Programme does not automatically include an award of a scholarship, we advise applicants to seek for financial support from their own countries or from international donors.

For international applicants: Please find a list of potential donor organisations here
For German applicants: Please find a list of potential donor organisations here
or search for a scholarship in the DAAD scholarship database here

Payment of Service Fees

If you are a "self-financed" participant or receive a non DAAD-EPOS scholarship you are requested to

  • transfer the service fee (550,-€) once you have received the invoice from TU Dortmund University
  • submit a statement of regular income of yourself or a private sponsor together with a declaration that she or he will finance your entire studies (TU Dortmund University as and 2nd year University) or a copy of your scholarship award
  • transfer the matriculation fee to the TU Dortmund University before semester start and
  • you have to transfer the academic expenses which arise for the selected second year destination to the respective SPRING partner university before the start of the second study year
