Erasmus+ - neue Regelung für Stipendien

Ab sofort dürfen Studienbeihilfenbezieher sowohl das Auslandsstipendium der Studienbeihilfenbehörde als auch den Erasmusmobilitätszuschuss in voller Höhe gleichzeitig beziehen. Sobald man einen positiven Bescheid über die Studienbeihilfe bekommen hat, kann man nach einer Erasmusnominierung durch die Heimatuniversität gesondert um die Auslandsbeihilfe bei der Studienbeihilfenbehörde ansuchen. Damit soll es noch mehr Studierenden erleichtert werden am Erasmusprogramm teilzunehmen.
