7.0. Erasmus+ Grants:

 

7.1. Daily Grant Amounts

For the mobility period, the grant per day is 160 € for all countries. For the mobility period exceeding 14 days, the grant per day is 112€.

 

7.2. Travel Grant by Distance

In addition to the daily grants, the travel grant is calculated by using the “Distance Calculator” below:

http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/tools/distance_en.htm

The distance calculator is used to determine the distance between the location where the staff is residing and the place of activity. The kilometers in distance calculated by the distance calculator corresponds to the round-trip and the amount does not get multiplied by two.

7.3. A Sample of Grant Calculation

For example, if you visit USA for 5 working days, the total grant is calculated as follows:

Daily Grant: 160*5 (mobility days) + 160*2 (travel days) = 1120 €

Travel Grant: 1100 €

 Total Grant: 2220 €

 

8.0. Additional Grant for Disabled Participants:

For disabled participants, it is possible to receive additional grants to meet their specific needs. In order for the disabled staff to be given additional grants, METU ICO is required to request additional grants from the Turkish National Agency. The applications for additional grants should be made during the term of the contract, but in any case up to 60 days before the contract end date. The Turkish National Agency will evaluate each application specifically and determine whether the additional grant can be granted, and if so, the appropriate grant amount. In order to learn more about the application forms, you may contact METU ICO.
