ERASMUS GRANT

The exact funding rate of the ERASMUS mobility grant for the year 2019/2020 is handled differently depending on the country group. How high the funding rate is is often measured by the different living costs in the target country. Below you will find an overview of the three country groups and the respective funding amount:

ERASMUS grant for country group 1: 315 € (430 € internship) per month

Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Norway, Austria and Sweden

ERASMUS grant for country group 2: 255 € (380 € internship) euros per month

Belgium, Greece, Iceland, Croatia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey and Cyprus

ERASMUS grant for country group 3: 195 € (330 € internship) per month

Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary

Switzerland is not an official ERASMUS program country and is therefore not funded by the mobility grant. Nevertheless, German exchange students can be supported by a grant from Switzerland (around CHF 400). Detailed information should be obtained from the respective ERASMUS subject coordinator or from the Swiss partner university.

What can the ERASMUS grant be used for?

As a rule, the recipient of the ERASMUS grant is free to choose the purpose for which he or she wants to use the grant amount. In the official regulation of the contracts between the European partner universities it only says: “The mobility grant is used to finance the student's stay in the partner country.” Depending on your needs, you can spend the money from your ERASMUS scholarship for purposes that you consider necessary look at - be it for learning aids, groceries, maintenance, moving or just for entertainment on site.
