Applicants with Children


Studying abroad with children

Students with a child/children who want to take part in the ERASMUS+ programme may apply for a special grant from the National Agency ERASMUS+ to supplement the ERASMUS+ grants for studies or internships abroad. This special grant helps to cover any additional costs relating to the mobility. The term ‘additional costs’ is based on a comparison of the study situation at home/at the home institution and the situation in the host country/at the host university and in particular relates to care costs/travel costs.

Calculation Applicants taking their own children abroad as part of an ERASMUS+ mobility will receive a fixed sum of 120 euros per month (4 euros per day) for the first child, following approval. This sum increases by 30 euros per month (1 euro per day) for the second and third child respectively.
