How much Financial Support can I get?

The consortium calculates the grant/financial support payments to the students placed in the institutions over the monthly amounts determined by the National Agency :

Country Groups Countries Monthly Student Internship Grant (€)
1st and 2nd Group United Kingdom, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Sweden,  Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg,  Norway, Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Southern Cyprus, Holland, Spain, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Greece 600

The Consortium will announce the maximum grant period for students via the application call. Students’ grants are determined by the total grant amount awarded by the Turkish National Agency to the Consortium.

The grant is paid in two installments to students.
The first installment does not exceed 80% of the total grant. The payment of the first installment is made before the departure of students. The second installment payment is made at the end of the traineeship period in accordance with reconsideration and recalculation of total grant with the delivery of Certificate of Attendance which indicates specific beginning and ending dates of studies at the host institution and the dates of entry and exit on the passport. Students may only receive the financial support for the duration they were abroad for Erasmus traineeship. Students may receive a monthly salary from the placed organization but only at the organization’s discretion.
