Erasmus grant for studies

Students who are going on an Erasmus exchange will receive an Erasmus grant for studies. To be eligible to apply for an Erasmus grant, you first need to have been nominated via the Unit for International Mobility or your department/faculty.

After you have been nominated, you will receive information on how to submit your Erasmus grant application. The grant is intended to cover additional costs related to your Erasmus exchange and will not provide full cost coverage for your stay abroad. An Erasmus grant is based on the length of the exchange and varies depending on the living costs in the host country.

Additional top-up grants

Students with permanent or long-term disabilities, including disabilities caused by physical or mental illness, are entitled to a special inclusion supplement of EUR 250 per month. You apply for the additional grant directly in MoveOn. Read about how to apply in the Grant manual for Erasmus studies.

Inclusion support for actual costs

In addition to the top-up you can apply for inclusion support for actual costs. This support can be used if you have extra costs that exceed the total granted top-up sum (see above). The request for inclusion support for actual costs must be justified by the applicant and approved by the Swedish Council of Higher Education (UHR). More information on how to apply can be found here.
