Mobility grants

All Mobility grants described below are managed and allocated by the Student Mobility Office. Access to these grants is subjected to compliance with the application process of each type of mobility. Please read the mobility grant regulation at ULB.

The amounts reported below are for informational purposes only and are not binding on ULB. Grants are paid depending on the availability of the fundings we receive from the European Commission and the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, and also from internal funds when applicable. ULB is not expected to provide grants on internal fundings if the European and national fundings are not sufficient to fund every mobility. The final grant amount is mentioned on the grant contract signed before departure.

Students are entitled to up to 12 months of Erasmus+ funding for studies and/or internships per cycle (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate). During their studies, besides the Erasmus+ grants, students can receive a maximum of 1 FAME grant (non-EU mobility) and 1 Erasmus Belgica grant (mobility in Flanders).

Students leaving after 01/09/2021 who use sustainable means of transport for the greater part of their round-trip travel to their host destination are entitled to a 50€ bonus lump sum paid at the end of their stay.
Up to 4 days of travel can be added to the total stay duration used to calculate the monthly grant. Supporting documents will be requested. Eligible transport means are buses, trains, and car sharing (planned through official car sharing platforms).

We often mention students with fewer opportunities to differentiate between the different grant amounts. These are the students included in this category:
- Students receiving the FWB grant allocation the year before their departure (status confirmed by the Student Social Service)
- Students from disadvantaged backgrounds (status confirmed by the Student Social Service)
- Students with specific needs (status confirmed by the CEFES)

If you find that our mobility grants are not enough to support yourself, please contact ULB's Student Social Service (SSE)

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ grants are automatically attributed to students who have applied and who have been selected for a study or internship mobility in Europe, provided that the funds we receive are sufficient. If we do not receive enough funds to give a grant to every student, the Student Mobility Office will proceed to a selection. The modalities of this selection will be communicated via email by the person in charge of your file. Grant amounts vary according to the cost of living in the host country, and to the socio-economic status of the students, according to the table below :

Erasmus Belgica

Each student receives a 100€ fee for any Erasmus Belgica participation. Students who choose to book a residence in their host city during the mobility can request for an additionnal 100€ per month

Non-EU (FAME)

Student leaving for a non-EU mobility can receive the FAME or Erasmus+ grant. The ULB is allowed to use 20% of its Erasmus+ funds for mobilities outside of Europe, and uses the FAME funds for the remaining mobilities, once these 20% are spent. This grants offers a monthly grant depending on the social status of the student + a transport fee depending on the the distance between ULB and the host university only for student with less opportunities, according to the table below. If we do not receive enough funds to give a grant to every student, the Student Mobility Office will proceed to a selection. The modalities of this selection will be mentionned by email by the person in charge of your file. Monthly grants may be completed with internal funds if the budget allows it. Priority will be give to students with less opportunities and with less income, and also to students for whom a non-EU mobility is mandatory (Translation & Interpreting students studying chinese, russian and arabic).

Up to this day, there is no funding for non-EU internships.
