Erasmus+ scholarship

Student receives an Erasmus+ scholarship from which travel and residence expenses need to be covered.

Taking into account the Erasmus+ funding granted from the European Commission, as well as the amount of co-financing granted by the Republic of Latvia, the UL Erasmus+ Commission approves the scholarship amounts for each Erasmus+ project.

The actual funding of the mobility period shall be determined by multiplying the monthly rate corresponding to the target country by the number of months of the mobility period. In the case of a part-month period, the eligible funding is determined by multiplying the days of the part-month by 1/30 part of the unit cost of one month.

Within 30 calendar days after the signing of the Erasmus+ grant agreement, UL transfers the student a payment of 90% of the total amount of mobility funding.

The submission of final report documents at the end of Erasmus+ study mobility shall be considered as a student's request for the final payment of mobility funding (10%). The UL shall pay within 45 calendar days the student the final payment or request the reimbursement of the paid mobility funds (if the mobility period has been shortened).

The Erasmus+ fixed grant rate can be increased by 250 EUR/month* for mobility participants with fewer opportunities. UL has set support for students with fewer opportunities that meet one of the following criteria:

  • disability (physical disorders, mental disorder, intellectual or sensory impairment);
  • health problems preventing participation in the programme (if student has additional medical costs during the mobility);
  • cultural differences (re-emigrant (one has lived outside of Latvia for at least 3 years without interruption and has returned to Latvia in the last two years); student with refugee status; representative from ethnic group: Roma);
  • social barriers (student is up to 23 years old (including) and meets one of the following criteria: student orphan or left without parental care; student has lived or is currently living in a nursing facility; student from a multi-child family (there are at least 2 dependent children in a family apart from a student);
  • economic barriers (low-income family status; student has at least one dependent child (up to 13 years (including)).

* UL is entitled to request an official document confirming the student's compliance with the specified criterion. If applications exceed the available budget, the UL reserves the right to suspend the application immediately, to alter the criteria for the application or to reject the application. 

Additional funding (one-off payment of 50 EUR) for Green travel grant can be provided to reach the host country. Green travel means that the main part of the total distance (in both directions) is used by a train, bus or car (shared by at least one more mobility student).
