Please note that:
Students participating in Erasmus studies, will receive an additional 250 EUR per semester on behalf of the Estonian Government.
The scholarship is usually not sufficient to cover all expenses during the exchange semester. Therefore, the students may need to use some of their own funds (savings, parents' support, loans).
Double-financing is not allowed, which means that if a student receives any other scholarship financed by the European Commission or the Republic of Estonia, they can participate in the Erasmus programme, but without Erasmus scholarship.
Erasmus+ grant for students with disadvantaged background
Students who have qualified for the need-based study allowance or need-based special allowance for the semester (or for the semester before) the exchange studies are entitled to additional scholarship of 200 euro top-up in a month.
Student has to submit the Letter of Confirmation proving the allocation of the allowance to the Mobility Centre on the following dates to mobility at taltech dot ee:
- Exchange studies for autumn or full academic year - 15th of July
- Exchange studies for spring semester - 15th of November
Need based allowance certificate is available from the Estonian state portal (file name: OTSUS). Special need based allowance certificate you can get from the Dean's Office.
Arrangements for students with physical, mental or health-related conditions
Additional funding is available for participants with physical, mental or health-related conditions via the Erasmus+ special needs support. Erasmus+ grants may therefore be higher than the regular study grant to offset the specific difficulties faced by the participant (such as adapted accommodation, travel assistance, medical attendance, supportive equipment, adaption of learning material, an accompanying person for students with disabilities). This additional support grant is a contribution based on real costs.
