Erasmus+ Funding

Erasmus+ is the programme for education, youth and sport of the European Union. Erasmus+ combines the previous EU-programmes for lifelong learning, youth and sport as well as the European cooperation programmes at university level.

Erasmus+ has a budget of around 14,8 billion Euro. Until 2020, more than four million people will profit from the EU funds.The programme is designed for seven years and should improve competences and employability. Furthermore it should advance the modernization of the general and professional education and of the children and youth help. Information about Erasmus+ can be found on the website of the European committee.

Following mobility measures for students can be funded under the EU education programme Erasmus+:

Special funding of participants with an impairment

Impaied students can receive a grant for additional costs within the scope of an ERASMUS stay. This applies for all ERASMUS programs.

Special funding of students with children (only for time spent studying abroad)

Students who want to take their children with them on the Erasmus+ study stay in one of the program countries and who will be a single parent during the Erasmus+ mobility, can receive special funds as a lump sum. The maximum fund amount per month is given by three groups of countries.

Repeated grant

A repeated grant is possible in the Erasmus+ program. Students (for internships also graduates) can be supported multiple times for study stays and internships in program countries. This applies for a total of 12 grant months for every study cycle. For every (new) grant applies a minimum duration of two months for internships and three months for study stays.

The already supported grant months in every study cycle through ERASMUS or LEONARDO DA VINCI in the Program of lifelong learning (LLP) will be taken into account to the maximum 12 grant months that are feasible for every study cycle.
