Erasmus+ Grant

EU Countries (Programme Countries), Switzerland and UK

EU grant amount: € 250, 300 or 350  for each month of mobility (the amount of the grant varies according to the living cost of the hosting country, for details read the Guide for selected students, available at the “attachments” section of this page).

Additional contribution financed by the MUR: will be calculated on your Equivalent Financial Situation Indicator – ISEE (as requested by Ministerial Decree 1047/2017). Students are strongly suggested to apply for the ISEE certificate well in advance.

Deadlines and procedures are described in the Guide for selected students, available at the attachments section of this page.

The first 50% of this contribution will be paid simultaneously to the Erasmus+ grant. The remaining 50% of this contribution will be paid at the end of the mobility period (at least 90 days) according to the rules published in the Guide for selected students and undersigned within the mobility agreement.

WARNING: No MIUR contribution is foreseen to: students who lack the presentation of the ISEE certificate within the deadline and compliant with the procedures described in the Guide for selected students, students who hold an ISEE calculation higher than 50.000 euros and students enrolled as “fuori corso” from the second year onwards.

Non-EU Countries (Partner Countries)

Funding for non-EU institutes consists entirely of the European Union contribution and is divided as follows:

  • contribution for living costs: €700 per month; the amount is the same for all non-EU Countries and is based on the number of days of actual stay abroad.
  • contribution for travel expenses: amounts are established by the Erasmus+ programme based on the distance in kilometres between Bologna and the central campus of Universities included in the Agreement. Amounts are price ceilings, the student will be reimbursed for the actual cost of the travel ticket up to the amounts indicated in the guide for selected students of the relevant academic year. 

For mobility towards non-EU countries the contribution by the MIUR is not provided.

The first is paid at the beginning of the mobility, the second is provided after the end of the mobility period or, anyway, according to the information published in the guide for selected students.
