General Grant rates for ERASMUS stays

Top-up amounts for students with fewer opportunities
The EU also awards a top-up grant for students with fewer opportunities, the grant amount is €250/month.
The group of students with fewer opportunities includes:
- Students with child/ren
- Students with disabilities (from GdB 20)
- Students with a chronic illness
- Students from non-academic families (first-time graduates)
- Working students (employed for at least 6 months since 01.06.2021, net salary between 450€ and 850€, employment must be paused for the period abroad).
The supplement cannot be combined if more than one criterion applies.
Participants with children, disabilities or chronic illnesses can alternatively claim the real costs incurred.
Top-up for sustainable travel
Students can receive a one-time bonus of 50€ if they use sustainable, low-emission means of transport (bus, train, carpool, bicycle) for their arrival and departure.
Similarly, students who take longer to travel using these modes of transport can receive up to 4 additional days of funding.
Students with a second scholarship
ERASMUS+ funding can be combined with some scholarships.
Simultaneous funding via ERASMUS+ and other EU programmes is excluded. Simultaneous funding via PROMOS and ERASMUS+ is also not possible.
Aursland-BAföG can be obtained in addition to ERASMUS+.
Scholarship holders from other institutions must inform them about the ERASMUS+ funding and have them check whether parallel funding is permissible.
If the combination of grants is not possible, students can still accept the ERASMUS+ place without an ERASMUS+ grant (zero grant funding).
