Erasmus+ aims to promote equal opportunities and inclusion, therefore access to the programme is facilitated for students from disadvantaged backgrounds (this applies in Germany in the Erasmus+ programme to single parents during study abroad) and with special needs.
The amounts mentioned below are valid from the use of the 2021 call.
Students whose stay abroad is funded by Erasmus+ and travel abroad with their child/children can apply for a monthly lump sum of 250 euros/month, which will be paid in addition to the regular Erasmus+ sponsorship rate. For this purpose, the birth certificate must be submitted to the International Office as well as proof of taking the child with them after arrival in the host country (e.g. registration at school). In the case of a short-term stay, a one-time payment of 100 euros can be made.
Students with a degree of disability (GdB) of 20 or higher also receive a special grant of 250 euros/month, or a one-time payment of 150 euros for short-term stays.
Students (and graduates) who complete an internship receive 150 euros/month as a supplement to the country rate.
Green Travel: A one-time top-up of 50 euros is paid for sustainable travel (by train, ship or similar). In addition, depending on the duration of the trip, up to 4 days can be added to the scholarship as funding period.
The additional grants can be combined. Additional measures can be added during the course of the programme.
