Erasmus+ top-up grant

Radboud University believes it is important that an international exchange is accessible to every student. This is why we offer the Erasmus+ Inclusion top-up. This is a financial support for students who need it for their study or internship exchange due to special circumstances. There is also the Erasmus+ Green Travel top-up.

Eligible countries or regions
All EU/EEA countries
Coverage of scholarship
Partial scholarship

Conditions Erasmus+ Inclusion top-up

  • students with a physical or mental disability that hinders your study or international mobility. This should be proved with a doctor's certificate or this should be verifiable with your student dean;
  • students who receive a supplementary grant from DUO (or equivalent from another country) because they come from a family with a lower income.

Once you apply for the top-up, you must declare that you meet the requirements to top-up. The assessment process that follows takes place in a careful and confidential manner.

Conditions Erasmus+ Green Travel top-up

We would like to reward students who travel to their destination using a sustainable form of transport (with low CO2 emissions). You will receive a bonus of €50. Examples of sustainable forms of transport are: bicycle, bus or train. To be eligible for the top-up, you must have travelled most of both the outward and return journey to and from the destination country in a sustainable manner.

To receive this top-up, you need to take the following steps:

  • Save (if applicable) all tickets of your transport and submit them (digitally) to us;
  • Complete and sign the Declaration Green Travel top-up form. On the form, describe how and when you travelled. You will receive this form from us via e-mail.
Amount of scholarship
The Erasmus+ top-ups are additional scholarships on top of the normal Erasmus+ scholarship. The Inclusion top-up is €250 per month, or €8.33 per day. The Green Travel top-up is a one-off bonus of €50.

How to apply

Apply to the International Office of your faculty.

Do you meet the set conditions and would you like to be considered for one of the top-ups? Then you can indicate this on the scholarship application form. This form will be sent to you after you have been selected and nominated by your host university for a study exchange. Students who will do an internship abroad can apply throughout the year and indicate this on the application form at that time.

We then do a brief check to see if you do indeed qualify for the top-up. This is done carefully and confidentially, taking into account your privacy.
