Erasmus financial support is a monthly grant that helps a student cover travel and subsistence costs (including insurance and visa costs) incurred through mobility. Erasmus students, whether or not they have been awarded a grant, are not required to pay tuition, enrolment fees, exams and access to the library at the host institutions. They also retain the right to other possible scholarships. By obtaining Erasmus status, the student gets the opportunity to obtain a grant, but it does not automatically accrue to them. The faculty applies for funding for its students in the annual national call, but funding is limited and due to the growth in the scope of activities, it is not possible to provide co-financing for all activities. When the faculty receives a decision on the amount of allocated funds from the National Agency (CMEPIUS), it prepares the Grant Award Decision.
CMEPIUS determines the minimum and maximum permitted monthly amounts of co-financing, and the faculty then independently determines the amount of the actual monthly financial support for each contract year. The amount for an individual student is defined in the grant agreement.
Erasmus students without Erasmus grant (Zero-grant students)
Obtaining an Erasmus grant is not a condition for participating in an Erasmus exchange. An Erasmus student without an Erasmus grant can participate in the exchange as well. That includes those students who meet all the conditions for Erasmus mobility and are entitled to all the benefits of Erasmus status, but do not receive an Erasmus grant. More information on available funds can be found on the CMEPIUS website and at the Erasmus coordinator at the faculty.
Financial support for students with special needs
Students with special needs who, within the framework of the Erasmus Individual Mobility, participate in mobility for the purpose of study or traineeship during the selection year, may apply for additional financial support from the reserved funds for special needs. More information on financial support for special needs can be found below. Candidates can also find more information at the Erasmus+ faculty coordinator.
