ERASMUS+ Financial Support

Under the Erasmus + grant, you will not receive a full scholarship, but a so-called mobility grant to compensate for the increased living costs in your host country.

 

You will receive the Grant Agreement with further information for the implementation of the ERASMUS stay via email from the Office of International Relations (Mainz).

The amount of the ERASMUS grant depends on the country group (1,2 or 3) in which the respective host university is situated.

  • Country group 1: Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom: monthly grant 420 €
  • Country group 2: Belgium, (Germany), France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus: monthly grant 360 €
  • Country group 3: Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, FYR Macedonia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary: monthly grant 300 €

The length of the financial support for all country groups is:

  • max. 4 months for stays of 1 semester
  • max. 8 months for a stay of 2 semesters

The terms of payment are detailed in the Grant Agreement (see points 4.1 and 4.2). The payment of the mobility grant will be made in two installments.

In many cases, the actual study visit to the partner university will continue beyond the respective period of financial support. In these cases, the period between the end of the financial support and the end of the study period is considered a so-called "zero grant" period. It is part of your ERASMUS eligibility period, even if no financial subsidy is paid, as you continue to use the other benefits of the ERASMUS program during this period.

Detailed information on the payment of the mobility grant and the documents to be submitted can be found in the Erasmus leaflet.

Please note: A mobility grant can only be paid if you have completed your Erasmus study abroad for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 months period. If the minimum duration is not achieved, you must pay back any mobility grant already received.

Under certain conditions intensive language course and orientation days at the host university may be included in the mobility period and thus in the financial support.

Erasmus-entitled students should also be able to take advantage of their stay abroad with ERASMUS + BAföG. With the BAföG regulation, which has been in force since 2011 (eligibility rule of section 21 (3) no. 2 BAföG), (EU) subsidies remain free of charge up to a maximum of € 300 on a monthly average. This applies indiscriminately to all gifted and performance-based scholarships (ERASMUS is included). Grants over € 300 per month are taken into account as income and count towards benefits from the BAföG. Students who do not receive a national BAföG may also be eligible for a BAföG study abroad.

Please check with the respective BAföG offices about the conditions.

A DAAD scholarship and Erasmus grant cannot be claimed at the same time.

  • Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus scholarship cannot be used simultaneously.
  • If you receive a scholarship from another institution (e.g. Stiftung, Deutschlandstipendium), you will receive the regular Erasmus grant.

Inclusion and equal opportunities are central concerns in the Erasmus + program. For students with disabilities and for students with children there is the possibility of special support in the Erasmus+ program. This must be requested before starting your study mobility. Further information can be found on the pages of the Erasmus National Agency DAAD.

ERASMUS participants with disabilities
It is important to communicate the disability to us as well as the host university, so that it can be clarified in advance that the implementation of the ERASMUS mobility and the increased support effort can be implemented. Disabled ERASMUS participants can apply for a grant for extra costs in the context of an ERASMUS stay in addition to the regular ERASMUS grant. Students wishing to apply for a grant should send an e-mail to the Office of International Relations (erasmus@uni-koblenz-landau.de).

Only those additional costs resulting from the mobility abroad that are not covered by other national bodies (such as the Studentenwerk, health insurance funds, social welfare offices, regional associations) can be subsidized.

The application must be completed by the University of Koblenz-Landau together with the ERASMUS participant, signed by both sides and submitted to the NA DAAD by the University up to two months prior to departure. Subsequent application after departure cannot be granted. Please get in touch with the Office of International Relations at an early stage.

ERASMUS participants with children or special needs
ERASMUS participants with special needs (for example, single parent with child) must report this to us as well as to the host university so that it can be clarified beforehand that the implementation of the ERASMUS mobility and the increased supervision effort can be implemented.

Students who apply for a grant, please send an e-mail to the Office of International Relations. The application for additional funding should be submitted by the University of the Koblenz-Landau to the NA DAAD at least two months before departure. The sooner the application documents are available to the NA DAAD, the sooner the funding can be decided upon. Subsequent application after departure cannot be granted. Please get in touch with the Office of International Relations at an early stage.
