In addition to the regular monthly Erasmus installments, participants may also apply for an increase of up to the maximum according to their specific country group.

If, in the case of a disability of 50 GdB or more, additional costs arise due to the stay abroad that are not otherwise covered by another national agency (Integrationsämter, Krankenkassen, Landschaftsverbände, Sozialämter, Studentenwerk), participants can apply for additional funding from the ERASMUS+ programme (maximum possible €10,000). These extra costs must be presented and proven in the application.



The application has to be submitted at least two months prior to the start of the mobility.
