Number of Scholarships

In 2022, approximately 55,000 participants were funded within the Erasmus+ framework.


The duration of the Erasmus+ study and traineeship periods may vary from 2 to 12 months. The maximum, however, is of 36 months for studies or traineeships:

  • For Bachelor's, Master's or doctoral students of up to 12 months
  • For students in comprehensive degree courses, such as medicine, programmes ending with a state examination or traditional diploma courses the grant will be awarded for a period of up to 24 months and an additional 12 months for students pursuing a doctoral degree.
