Grant Calculation, Instalments and Reimbursement
The grant and top-ups, excluding the single contribution for Green Travel, are calculated on base rates per day. Before the start of the mobility, the host institution confirms the planned duration of stay in the Letter of Acceptance, which is used to calculate the provisional grant.
After the end of the stay, the host institution confirms the final number of days of stay in the Confirmation of Stay, which is used to calculate the final grant. The grant is disbursed in two instalments:
- The 1st instalment (70%) is disbursed before the start of the studies.
- The 2nd instalment (30%) is disbursed after the end of the studies.
The grant rate is calculate on base rates per day. Top-ups are provided as single contributions as indicated above. Before the start of the mobility, the host institution confirms the duration of the stay in the Letter of Acceptance whichis used to calculate the grant. The total grant is disbursed before the stay in one instalment.
If the required documents are not submitted or not submitted on time as agreed in the Grant Agreement, the grant must be reimbursed.
If the stay does not begin as agreed in the Grant Agreement or is terminated prematurely, the grant must be reimbursed.
The Department International Student Affairs will send out a notice giving four weeks to reimburse the amount.
If no reimbursement is made, the case is handed over to Division 3: Legal and Academic Affairs, which initiates a reminder procedure. Reminders are sent with a short deadline. If the deadline is not met, enforcement proceedings are initiated.
