UNIC promotes green mobility to keep the ecological footprint of our European University as small as possible. To set positive examples, UNIC will offer a Train Instead of Plane (TIP) grant scheme for students who commit to travelling by train (for distances over 350km). UNIC provide 15 grants per year for students who commit to traveling by train to take part in exchanges, seminars or other credit-awarding activities and other activities enabling networking between UNIC students. By traveling by train instead of plane, you are not only helping the environment, you also get the opportunity to visit other countries and cities on the way!
The TIP Scheme will involve grants of €185 which equals the costs of an Interrail ticket for 3 days per month. Grant applications will first be selected (to see whether the train offers a sustainable alternative and fits the >350km rule) and then awarded in a lottery. Application is now open for students for the upcoming summer period and the winter semester 2022/23.
Please send an email application to the International Office at Ruhr Universität Bochum (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following attachments until March 15, 2023 or May 15, 2023 (depending on when you intend to travel):
• Scanned copy of the confirmation of your mobility (e.g., an email stating your participation)
• Current proof of enrolment (e.g., a confirmation of enrolment or a scanned copy of your student ID
