Funding possibilities

So you have figured out where you want to go? Then you might be interested in getting a little financial support for your trip!

Plenty of different funding opportunities exist, depending on where you want to go and what you will be doing there (study, internship, thesis research …).

Continue reading for a short introduction on the different opportunities or check out the overview of all funding possibilities on the KU Leuven student mobility website.

I am going abroad somewhere in Europe

If you are thinking about an exchange at a destination within Europe, you will probably be familiar with Erasmus+.

You can apply for an Erasmus+ grant through your own faculty, so make sure to check with your faculty or exchange coordinator to get informed about the application procedures specific to your programme.

For more information, check out these pages:

You can apply for an Erasmus Belgica grant.

Funding opportunities also exist for Summer and Winter Schools and Group Travels that take place in Europe.

I am going abroad somewhere outside of Europe

When you are planning on travelling outside of Europe for an exchange, Erasmus+ is a less evident choice, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

KU Leuven offers a wide range of funding opportunities, whether you are going on semester exchange outside of Europe, participating in summer or winter school abroad or doing a traineeship or thesis research at an international host organisation.

Your Faculty will inform you about application procedures for relevant grants. If you have questions, you can always reach out to your Faculty exchange coordinator.

If you are student facing financial barriers, you may be eligible for additional financial support.
