E+ Personnel: Scholarship benefits

The financial support for Erasmus stays is based on the different costs of living in the destination countries

The Erasmus program offers the following allowances:

  • Subsistence allowance (graded according to destination country)
  • Travel allowance
  • Special allowances for staff with additional financial needs abroad because of their disability (20 percent or more), chronic illness or child(ren)

Please note that there is no legal entitlement to funding or a specific grant amount.

Distances are calculated with the help of the EU Distance Calculator.
The one-way distance is the basis for calculating the amount of EU financial assistance for the round trip.

100 - 499 km 180 EUR 210 EUR
500 - 1,999 km 275 EUR 320 EUR

The place of departure does not have to be the same as the location of the sending institution. For this case, the travel receipts must be kept as proof of the actual place of arrival and departure. 

Arrivals and departures with a sustainable means of transport (e.g. bicycle, train, long-distance bus, car pool) are rewarded with the increased subsidy for green travel. The grant for green travel is applied for with the "Declaration of Honor for Green Travel" and paid out together with the first scholarship installment. KOOR may request original receipts on a random basis. You can find more information about green travel here.

Special allowances for staff with disabilities, chronic illnesses and/or children

Erasmus+ aims to promote equal opportunities and inclusion, which is why students with special needs can access the program more easily. Useful information on disability-friendly universities from the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education can be found here.

Individual application

Unversity staff can claim up to EUR 15,000 of your costs that additional incurred abroad because of your special needs by submitting a separate application. The application must be submitted to KOOR no later than three months before the start of your stay. Please contact us at an early stage if you want to submit an application for real costs.
