The Erasmus scholarship is allocated to cover additional mobility expenses, such as travel and insurance costs, language training if needed, and to compensate for higher living costs in foreign countries. The scholarship does not cover all study abroad expenses.
It is possible to study abroad with a “zero scholarship.” In this case, the Erasmus scholarship will not be paid, but you will still have access to all Erasmus student rights (free study at Erasmus partner institutions, use of the Erasmus language assessment and learning system, etc.).
Note: Students from socially disadvantaged groups or those raising minor child(ren) may receive an additional €250 per month scholarship (not applicable in cases of special needs).
Students who choose to travel in an environmentally friendly way can receive an additional €50. An eco-friendly journey is considered when the majority of the trip is made using sustainable transportation methods (e.g., taking the bus, train, or carpooling with friends).
Students with special needs can receive additional support for studying abroad. According to the Erasmus+ program guide, a person with special needs is defined as a potential program participant whose physical, mental, or other health-related condition is such that their participation in mobility activities is impossible without additional funding. Applications for this support should be submitted to the Education Exchanges Support Foundation. More information can be found on the Foundation’s website www.erasmus-plius.lt.
