The student shall obtain financial support (lump sum for a month of the stay abroad) on the basis of the Grant Agreement.
The grant awarded covers the expenses only partially; it is a contribution towards increased expenses of living abroad. The student may also receive wages from the receiving organization.
The grant amounts are specified as follows:
- countries with high living expenses: EUR 660 per month
- countries with average living expenses: EUR 600 per month
- countries with low living expenses: EUR 480 per month
The student who was successful in the selection procedure is entitled to the financial support for the minimal duration of the mobility, i.e. two months. Funding toward longer mobilities depends on the decision of the University (based on funds available).
In case of graduate traineeships, financial support is granted only for the minimum length of the traineeship (2 months).
Financial contribution for students with a socio-economic disadvantage
Students with a socio-economic disadvantage, participating in the Erasmus+ traineeship, can apply for increase of the grant by EUR 200 per month.
The definition of a socio-economic disadvantage is based on Section 91 par. 3 Act on Higher Education Institutions No. 111/1998 Coll. This applies to students who are entitled to or get the social scholarship at their home university at the time of departure (which means their parents are entitled to a child benefit and the decisive income for the purposes of such benefit does not exceed the product of the life minimum and coefficient 1.5).
The written confirmation "Sdělení pro účely přiznání stipendia" (Statement regarding scholarship award) shall be issued by the Labour Office of the Czech Republic. In case the student is not a citizen of the Czech Republic and cannot obtain the Statement from the Labour Office of the CR, he/she shall submit another document confirming that the income for the previous year, decisive for the award of the benefit does not exceed the product of the life minimum of the family and coefficient 1.5. The document must include the translation into Czech (does not apply to Slovak documents) and be verified with the apostille. Please seek advice on the content and form of the document with the faculty international relations officer at MENDELU.
The application for increase of the grant shall be filed before the signature of the Grant Agreement at the Department of International Relations and Internationalization officer in charge of the Erasmus+ traineeships (Tereza Formáčková) to be assessed by the Institutional Coordinator.
Financial contribution for students with special needs
Students with disabilities or special educational needs can apply for a special grant through the Rectorate DIRI. Disability is deemed a certain type of auditory, visual or physical impairment or e.g. a condition requiring a special diet.
In the application the student shall give reasons why he/she applies for the special grant and shall hand it over to the Department of International Relations and Internationalization officer in charge of the Erasmus+ traineeships (Tereza Formáčková).
Attached shall be the cost calculation, medical report and a copy of the ZTP (disability) card (if applicable) and documents related to the Erasmus+ study period. The Rectorate DIRI shall assess the adequacy of the grant requested. The special grant shall be accounted for upon the return from the study abroad.
Deadlines for applications:
- 15 July for mobilities in the winter semester or for the entire academic year;
- 1 December or mobilities in the summer semester.
