Grant information

Grant rates

Only lump-sum subsidies (no full scholarships) for the cost of living and travel are allocated and vary from country to country. Grants can only be granted subject to budgetary coverage!

Due to the limited resources and the growing number of applications, only students applying for support for a foreign activity for the first time can expect to receive support in full amount of the following funding rates. Students applying for support a second time can only count on a share of the remaining funds after financing the initial applications.

In particularly justified exceptional cases (e.g. additional costs due to local mobility), these guideline values ​​may be exceeded. According to the available resources applicants with special needs may be supported separately (establishment of additional costs and medical proof necessary).

Applicants who are employed and remain on leave while receiving salaries will only receive 50% of the monthly contribution if the salary exceeds € 800,-/month.

Grants awarded by others may lead to a reduction or total denial of funding (notification requirement).

ATTENTION: If the stay abroad could be financed in accordance with study grants law, then this possibility must be used (rejection reason).
