Who can get the Erasmus+ funding? (CLOSED now, deadline 01/02/2018)

EU based schools, vocational and adult education organisations, as well as NGOs, museums etc. are all eligible to receive full funding to attend this course under a KA1 mobility grant, provided they have a PIC. Check with your Erasmus+ National Agency to verify if your institution is eligible as sending organisation under KA1.

Alternatively you can fundraise yourself to support your participation (e.g. through your home institution, a donor, a scholarship, etc). The estimated total participation cost, depending on your country or origin, may range between 1000 - 1500 Euro.

Which are the steps to apply for the Erasmus+ Grant? (CLOSED now, deadline 01/02/2018)

  1. Check with your National Office or Agency if you (and your institution) is eligible to apply.
  2. Read carefully the Erasmus+ guide, notably the sections related to KA1.
  3. Ensure that your Institution has a PIC code. This is mandatory to participate in Erasmus+. Find here the guidelines on how to register.
  4. Download the application form from your national agency website.
  5. Write a complete and detailed proposal elaborating carefully your training needs and the expected impact. Have in mind that filling this application requires some time investment form your part; do not leave it for the last days.
  6. Submit the application online before the annual Erasmus+ deadline (01/02/2018).

What if I am not eligible, or too late to apply for Erasmus+?

If you are interested to take part but e.g. you come from a non-eligible country for Erasmus+ or missed the deadline, you may raise funds to support your participation (e.g. via your home institution, a donor, a scholarship, etc.).
