#Erasmus500: Towards a truly European grant
07 May 2020
The European Students Union (ESU), the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) and the European University Foundation (EUF) are launching a proposal for a baseline mobility grant of 500€/month from 2021 onwards.
The #Erasmus500 Declaration builds upon a DAAD proposal from 2019 and is aimed at addressing key issues such as:
- Inclusiveness: Ensure that working students can afford to go on Erasmus, rather than being structurally excluded from it.
- Simplicity: A European grant for the students of Europe – simple, fair and transparent.
- Strong support: A much higher grant than what is currently the case to make Erasmus a realistic prospect for all.
