Grant amount

Maximum grant amount is set by the European Commission for 3 groups of countries according to living costs. The grant is paid in 2 instalments: 90 % before mobility and 10 % after mobility. Students must comply with all provisions of the Grant agreement signed by the student and the university (represented by Erasmus institutional coordinator – vice-rector for international relations).

Example: A student goes for a mobility in Lithuania for 3 months and 15 days, a total of 105 days (3x30 = 90 +15 days). The grant is calculated as follows: Lithuania is from the second group of countries, monthly grant is 470 eur, 470 eur / 30 days x 105 days = 1 645 eur. Students gets 90 % of the grant before mobility (1 481 eur) and 10 % (164 eur) after mobility.

ZERO GRANT

Students who fulfil all Erasmus student eligibility criteria can benefit from all advantages of being an Erasmus student without receiving an EU mobility grant. This would, for example, be the case when the scholarship budget for the academic year in question has already been used up.
