The European Union has established the Leonardo traineeship grant programme within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme to provide European students with the opportunity to gain relevant professional experience by means of an internship abroad. Grantees will receive up to 1040 euro monthly (depending on a set of guidelines based on the distance travelled and the cost of living in the host country; in most cases, the sum actually given will be much lower than the maximum quantity hereby stated); funding will be provided for a maximum of 12 months. Interested students should contact the international office of their home university.
Applicants must be registered in a higher education institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognised degree or other recognised tertiary level qualification (up to and including the level of doctorate). Erasmus students are selected by their sending higher education institution.
