Promoting equity and inclusion through Erasmus+ grants

Thanks to the "international dimension" of the Erasmus+ program, you can now apply for financial support for selected destinations of the TUMexchange program. Since we want to achieve greater equity and inclusion at TUM, these grants are awarded according to personal and socio-economic criteria.

Have you successfully applied for an exchange spot within the TUMexchange program? Does your future host university have an agreement with TUM within the "international" dimension of Erasmus+? Then you can apply for a grant.

How it works

  • Application for an exchange spot within the TUMexchange program
  • Invitation to apply for the Erasmus+ grant will be automatically sent after the TUMexchange acceptance
  • Timely submission of your application documents at the TUM IC
  • Acceptance or refusal by the TUM IC
  • Submission of the required Erasmus+ documents at the TUM IC

Application and selection

The invitation to apply for an Erasmus+ grant will be sent by e-mail in January/ February.

The selection focuses on personal and socio-economic factors. These include the cultural and social background of students as well as exceptional circumstances of a family, mental or physical nature.

Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application in March/ April.

Attention: Unfortunately, we can only award a few scholarships. When choosing your partner university for the TUMexchange application, several criteria should play a role, not just the availabilty of an Erasmus+ grant.
