Erasmus+ funding

Coronavirus and stays abroad in 2021

Student mobility for studies (SMS)

Financial support for students studying abroad within the Erasmus+ programme is based on the different living costs in the programme countries. Starting from 2022, the following minimum student mobility for studies (SMS) grants will apply across Europe for the three groups of programme countries:

  • Group 1 (EUR 600 per month): Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom.
  • Group 2 (EUR 540 per month): Belgium, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus.
  • Group 3 (EUR 490 per month): Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary.

Time spent studying abroad may also include Zero Grant periods. This means time spent studying abroad without receiving Eramus+ funding while maintaining Erasmus status. For more information on Erasmus+ funding for studying abroad, please contact us at the International Office (IO).

Top-up amount for students with fewer opportunities (beginning with Erasmus project 2022):
Students with a chronic illness (see RKI website) or a disability from GdB20 can apply for a monthly top-up of 250 EUR. Alternatively, it is possible to apply to the National Erasmus Agency for funding of the real costs (so called "long application"). Students going abroad with child(ren), first-time academics as well as students who had a job subject to social security contributions for at least 6 months prior to their mobility abroad and earned more than 450 EUR and less than 850 EUR per month can also apply for the social top-up. More detailed information can be found here.

Top-up for green travel:
For "green travel" to the host university and back, a one-time grant of one-off payment of 100 EUR and an allowance for up to four days of travel is provided. Students who travel to the host university mainly on foot (hiking) or by bicycle, will receive a one-off grant of up to 350 EUR. For further information please click here

Staff mobility (STT, STA)

Financial support for staff mobility for teaching or training within the Erasmus+ programme is based on the different living costs in the target countries. Standard daily rates apply to funding from German universities.

The following fixed daily allowances apply to Germany for the three groups of programme countries up to the 14th day of stay. From the 15th to the 60th day of stay the subsidy amounts to 70% of the daily allowance.

  • Group 1 (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden): EUR 180 per day
  • Group 2 (Belgium, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus.): EUR 160 per day
  • Group 3 (Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary.): EUR 140 per day

Time spent abroad for staff mobility may include Zero Grant periods.This means time spent learning/working abroad without receiving Erasmus+ funding while maintaining Erasmus status. The International Office will provide more information based on your stay abroad.

The daily allowances are supplemented by a travel allowance based on real distances between the origin and destination, which are determined using the European Commission's Distance Calculator.

The following amounts will be reimbursed per stay depending on the distance.
The travel allowance calculated from this table according to the real distance refers to the entire journey (including the return trip).
