Internationalisation Funds are available to all university members (students, lecturers and staff) for the strategic internationalisation of Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences on the basis of the Internationalisation Strategy 2030. A distinction is made between the two areas "International mobil 2030" and "Internationalisiation@Home". Preference is given to non-European mobilities, but also European activities. The main evaluation criterion is the extent to which the quality of internationalisation is structurally improved.

Proof of co-financing through project or department funds or similar (usually in the amount of 50%) is required. The concrete projects can be submitted to the Senate Committee for Internationalisation three times a year by means of the "Application for Internationalisation Funds at Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences". The maximum funding amount is 1,000 euros. Further explanations can be found in the application itself.
