When I got my internship in Paris and found out that I was going to get paid a really small amount of money (at the OECD it is not consider salary the money interns receive, but rather “contribution to living expenses”), of course my first worry was: ”How am I going to finance my stay in such an expensive city like Paris?”. Gladly, I found out that just like when you go for a study semester abroad, when you do an internship abroad, you can also get money from ERASMUS (and an even bigger quantity!). It is incredibly easy to apply and 90% of the people who apply get the scholarship.
Who can apply for this scholarship?
- For students of all study programs starting their first year of study
- For graduates in the first year of study after graduation
How long is the funding duration?
From 2 to 12 months. But remember that you can only get in total 12 months of funding (combining Erasmus during a study semester abroad and/or internship abroad).
What are the scholarship rates?
The ERASMUS mobility grant for the internship is calculated according to fixed rates for each country group.
- Group 1: EUR 600/month (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom)
- Group 2: EUR 540/month (Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal , Spain, Cyprus)
- Group 3: 480 EUR/month (Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary)
When is the application deadline?
Applications can be submitted up to 4 weeks before the start of the internship, but they are quite flexible to be honest.
Where can I get more information?
Don’t miss the chance of doing an internship abroad!
