Erasmus+ Grant - approx 280-430€

The Erasmus+ Grant is dependent on location, and varies in each country.

Students can receive grants of up to 380 euros per month for study, or up to 430 euros per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
