Mobility grants

Avignon Université's committee for awarding mobility grants abroad meets several times a year.

Attention Please note: mobility grants are not awarded systematically. The committee reserves the right not to select your application (on the basis of social criteria, the number of applications and available funding). If you are awarded a grant, it will not be paid out until you have provided proof of arrival at your host university.

If you are going on a study or work placement placement in 2023-2024, you must complete a mobility declaration and grant application form, available on :

Eco-responsible means of transport: train, car-pooling, bus (proof to be provided, e.g. validated registration on car-pooling website).

Hybrid mobility

Any period of study or work placement abroad of any duration can take the form of a hybrid activity: physical mobility combined with a virtual component. In order to be eligible for an Erasmus+ grant, the physical mobility (study or placement) must have a minimum duration of 2 months

Conditions for the Erasmus+ grant  :

  • The Erasmus+ grant is paid without means testing.
  • Mobility is possible from the first year of the degree course for internships and studies.
  • Duration: minimum 2 months for studies and internships. The student can receive the Erasmus+ grant for a maximum of 12 months per study cycle (bachelor, master).
  • There is no age restriction for Erasmus+ student mobility.
  • The student must be working towards a higher education qualification.
  • Can be combined with the AMI grant; cannot be combined with a grant from the Sud-PACA Region.
  • The ERASMUS+ programme supports the mobility of people in situation of disability, whatever it may be (mental, physical, sensory or other). Additional grants are therefore offered to cover specific costs and are reserved exclusively for students with disabilities whose participation in mobility would be impossible without this additional funding. These grants, which complement the "classic" grant, take into account many parameters. A set of costs related to the specific needs of the student are thus covered on the basis of the actual costs estimated. The application must be made minimum 1 month before the date of departure.

 

International Mobility Grant (AMI), from the Ministry of Higher Education and Research
  • You must be a CROUS scholarship holder (at any level) to be eligible.
  • The duration of funding is 2 to 9 months maximum for all higher education studies.
  • The AMI scholarship can be combined with the Erasmus+ scholarship.
  • The amount is 400 euros per month.

Students who receive a national grant from the CROUS retain the benefit of this grant for the duration of their stay abroad, even if they also receive an international mobility grant.

SOCIAL INCLUSION & ECO-RESPONSIBILITY
Avignon Université's Maison de l'International is developing a policy of inclusion for its students. It promotes mobility to all students, explaining the various Erasmus+, AMI and PRAME financial levers for grant holders on social criteria or with a low family income, or living in priority urban areas. All students with disabilities are entitled to an individual interview to help them prepare for their mobility and the financial supplements that may be available.
This information is supplemented by an incentive for green mobility, which is also taken into account in Erasmus+ top-ups.
