Erasmus+ scholarship for studies

Erasmus+ is an EU programme with the aim to boost skills and employability as well as to modernize education, training and youth work. The programme provides opportunities for over 4 million participants in Europe to study, train and gain experience abroad.

As a student registered at Jönköping University, you have the possibility to study for 3-12 months at one of our Erasmus+ partner universities. All students that are selected and nominated as Erasmus students can apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship for studies. The scholarship is an EU funded financial support to help you cover additional costs related to your mobility abroad.

The scholarship amount is based on the length of your exchange period (number of days) and receiving country. Currently, the scholarship amount is between 360-460 euro per month.

Covid-19 and Erasmus+ scholarship for studies, autumn 2020

Due to COVID-19 and its many consequences on international mobility projects, the process for the Erasmus+ scholarship for studies has also been affected and is not carried out as it would during a “normal” year due to several reasons. An email with more detailed information was sent out in June to all students that have applied for the scholarship for autumn semester 2020.

The European Commission has decided that the Erasmus+ scholarship will be granted only for the physical part of the mobility (physical mobility) and not for the virtual part (virtual mobility). 

Physical mobility = on site studies in the host country, either on campus or entirely or partially online

Virtual mobility = online studies that does not take place in the host country, but from Sweden or another country than the host country

A link to an online form will be sent to students for a follow-up.

=======================================================

(Update 2020-11-05)

Due to the increased concern about Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions that come along with it, it might currently be difficult to complete international exchange mobilities.

Here you can find some advice on what to do if you are currently participating in Erasmus+ mobility studies abroad.

The following advices applies in cases where the host country is sharpening its restrictions (for example in case of a lockdown) and you have to get back to Sweden (or another country that is not the host country).


Erasmus+ scholarship

Please keep in mind that you will receive the scholarship only for the physical part of the mobility, but not for the virtual part.

If your mobility has changed/will change, please ask the contact person at the host university to fill in your Certificate of attendance. This is normally done at the end of the semester, but since you are ending your physical mobility in advance, it is good if we can get the dates that you have been in the host country already now (start and end date of physical mobility).

You can upload it in Intapps.

If the host university is not willing to sign the certificate of attendance now, then please ask them to at least confirm the dates of your physical mobility in an email to us. They can use the following e-mail address: andrea.vigorena.wagner@ju.se.

This will allow us to calculate the right amount of scholarship you are entitled to. Please be aware that if you already received the first payment, it might be possible that you will be liable for repayment.
