Following continuous advocacy efforts to make the new Erasmus+ programme more sustainable and inclusive, the Erasmus Student Network joined forces with the European University Foundation and the European Students’ Union to launch the #Erasmus500 Declaration.
The initiative proposes to elevate the Erasmus baseline mobility grant to 500€/month for the next Erasmus+ programme. The current system creates a lot of discrepancies in the way the grant is distributed, in a way that is not always fair for students. The aim of #Erasmus500 is to advocate towards decision-makers to increase the financial support that students receive and simplify the grant distribution mechanism.
#Erasmus500 is addressing key issues such as inclusiveness, simplicity and strong support.
