Eötvös Loránd University is announcing an application for additional financial support for students studying in higher education who have been awarded with an Erasmus+ scholarship for long-term (studies, traineeship, traineeship after graduation) or short-term mobility in the academic year 2022/2023 and are planning to opt for green travel.

Flights and boat trips are not considered green. Travelling by car is only eligible for additional support, if at least two Erasmus+ scholarship holders team up and make a conscious choice to car-share in order to travel more sustainably.

When the receiving country is Malta, and the student travels to Southern Italy by train, continuing their journey by boat from there, it is considered green travel. However, if the receiving country is France, and the student travels to Paris by plane, continuing their journey in a green travel form (e.g. train, bus) to the host city, they are not eligible for additional support.

  • Itemised list of the required additional financial support: It is only required for students who are applying for an additional grant over €250 per month. Completion is compulsory for students on long-term mobility, who apply for the additional financial support for students with fewer opportunities at the same time. Please provide an item-by-item list of the types of costs and the amount of financial support required for each type, for the entire mobility period. Please keep in mind that you must account for the use of the acquired financial support exceeding €250 per month item-by-item with invoices. For example, if you list "gluten-free foods", the invoice or other proof of purchase must indicate that the food you have purchased was indeed gluten-free, so in this case, for example, fruits cannot be accounted for. Only apply for support for additional costs that are closely related to your illness and are incurred due to your stay abroad!    
  • Detailed justification for the need for additional financial support: It is only required for students who are applying for an additional grant over €250 per month. Completion is compulsory for students on long-term mobility, who apply for the additional financial support for students with fewer opportunities at the same time.
  • Make sure that the “required amount” box contains ONLY NUMBERS, otherwise the formulas in the table will not work.
  • The medical certificate to be included as a compulsory attachment may also be issued by a general practitioner on the basis of a previous specialist report, but this is an option only if the specialist is not available before the application is submitted.
  • Attach any proof you deem necessary to the form.
  • If you have any questions, please contact us at least 1 or 2 weeks before the submission deadline. Do not leave the application to the last minute. IMPORTANT: You must sign the application form with a BLUE PEN.
E) Use of support, settlement

For student mobility where the additional financial support awarded exceeds €250 per month, the additional support can only be used for the costs requested in the application and approved by the Board of Trustees of Tempus Public Foundation. Proof of use must be provided with an itemised list supported by invoices by the participant at the end of the mobility. The additional support in this case can only be used for the expenses requested in the application and for those that the Board of Trustees of the Tempus Public Foundation has accepted.

For students who have received the additional financial support exceeding €250 per month will be prepared by a member of the ELTE Department of Erasmus+ and International Programmes during a short, Teams or Skype interview before departure to facilitate the account of the financial support.

The additional support will be transferred by the sending higher education institution to the rewarded applicant in one amount, after the grant has been awarded, preferably together with the first instalment of the Erasmus+ scholarship, if the mobility has not yet started. If your mobility has already started, the grant will be paid after the necessary amendment of the grant agreement.

Additional financial support for Erasmus+ mobility - 2021/22 (ARCHIV)

Updated: 5th of January 2021

1. Supplementary social support

Eötvös Loránd University and the Tempus Public Foundation are announcing an application for supplementary social support for students studying in higher education who wish to win a study or traineeship mobility scholarship to an Erasmus+ programme country in the 2020/2021 academic year. An awarded Erasmus+ scholarship is not a condition for submitting an application, so students applying for Erasmus can apply for additional support before receiving an Erasmus grant.

Please note that in the context of the outbreak of COVID-19, you may be eligible for additional support based on a new criterion (A sudden change in the social situation of the applicant). The latter criterion can be justified by the unexpected economic and social change in the life of the applicant student, which is specifically related to the period and events of the epidemiological emergency.

Application documents:

Application form (xlsx)

Call for application, full text (pdf)

Amount of scholarship

The amount that can be applied for in addition to the Erasmus+ scholarship awarded:

  • For mobility with study purposes: EUR 200 per month,
  • Erasmus+ traineeship: EUR 100 per month.

A student is only entitled to additional support if he/she has successfully applied for and won an Erasmus+ scholarship, traveled and fulfilled his/her study obligations abroad, thus realizing their Erasmus+ mobility with success. (The additional grant amount awarded will be added to the Erasmus scholarship, so the student will receive its 90% together with the 1st installment of the scholarship.)

Deadline for submitting the application for the autumn semester: June 19, 2020 (12:00)
Deadline for submitting the application for the spring semester and during the second call for applications: October 26, 2020 (12:00)

Students already awarded with an Erasmus+ scholarship, who are eligible for the additional support but were unable to submit the application form before the deadline,
still have opportunity to submit the application before their mobility starts. In their case, a separate decision will be made regarding the additional support, depending on the available funds. The decision will be communicated via e-mail.
