Erasmus Disability Grant

Additional grants are available for students and staff with disabilities and health conditions wishing to participate in an Erasmus+ placement and where participation would not be possible without extra financial support.  The allowances offered when disabilities or health conditions lead to additional mobility costs which exceed the maximum grant allocations allowed and which cannot be recovered from other sources.  The grant covers approved actual costs.

Applications for the Erasmus Disability Grant must be submitted to the Outbound Study Abroad team prior to the start of your mobility.  Individuals risk funds not being available if they apply after they have started their mobility.

Your application must include a statement from a doctor or other authority confirming the disability or health condition, its severity, the impact on the Erasmus+ mobility, additional requirements and additional costs to be met.  A detailed estimate of costs is required.

The application should provide information on any other sources of financial support that the student receives and why this is insufficient to cover extra costs.

If the application is approved, the National Agency will specify a maximum supplementary allowance.  On completion of the Erasmus+ period a final report of expenditure will be required.  If the expenditure is less than the approvied maximum, a recover order will be raised and the difference must be repaid to the National Agency.
