All students can apply for an Erasmus scholarship. It is a grant from the Flemish Community. The amount of the scholarship depends on 2 factors:
- the category you belong to
- the country of destination
In Flanders there are two different scholarship amounts, based on family income:
Category 1 : If you pay the reduced registration fees at the university, which is the case for:
- The ‘scholarship student’: a student who meets the financial criteria for obtaining a study grant from the Flemish Community.
- The ‘near-scholarship student’: has a reference income of a max. € 1,512 above the upper limit of the study grants.
Category 2 : All other students
The destination countries are divided into three groups:
|Group 1||Group 2||Group 3|
|Sweden||Spain||Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia|
The Erasmus scholarship amounts are as follows:
|Destinations||Category 1||Category 2|
|Group 1||€ 435 per month||€ 335 per month|
|Group 2||€ 385 per month||€ 285 per month|
|Group 3||€ 335 per month||€ 235 per month|
The Erasmus scholarship covers maximum 12 months.
You can’t apply for this grant for the period that you will stay in Antwerp. This means that during the 1st year you can apply for your mobility to:
- the UK (€ 435 per month or € 335 per month)
- France (€ 435 per month or € 335 per month)
- Spain (€ 385 per month or € 285 per month)
In the 2nd year the grant will depend on the place where you will do your internship and/or your master thesis.
