European Erasmus grant


Join us


What will the future Erasmus+ Programme look like?

On 21st July 2020,  EU leaders agreed on a recovery package and the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) (1) that will help the EU to rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic and will support investment in the green and digital transitions. The overall amount for commitments is EUR 1,074.3 billion

The new MFF and its consequences

After five intense days of negotiations, the EU leaders have agreed on the recovery package, and the new long-term budget of the EU, to address the current critical situation in Europe.

We made it this far!

On the 30th of April, the EUF, ESN and ESU officially launched the #Erasmus500 initiative, marking the beginning of a journey towards a fair and transparent Erasmus grant system.
