  • Grant payments shall be made in 2 instalments. First payment is 80% of the total Erasmus+ grant. Payment of the second instalment is dependent on students returning all necessary documentation to CEPS, completing all required procedures, and students’ academic standing (successfully complete/pass at least half of the course credits). Failure to do so will mean forfeit of the second payment.   Please note that the second payment shall be made after the completion of mobility.

 

  • If the host institution/company is closed on holiday breaks/national holidays, there’s possibility that traineeship may be interrupted. In such case, grant payment will be made for the period where the host institution/company remains closed, however, but this duration won’t be considered as part of the period of activities. In order to carry out the activities within the planned period, you will need to inquire, prior to the beginning of your traineeship, about the dates during which the host institution will be closed, and make sure your stay in host country matches at least minimum days (except holidays) of the planned period of the mobility. Weekends holidays make part of the activity period.

 

  • In case the activity is interrupted due to force majeure events, activities that, in the end of the mobility period, do not match the required duration of mobility will be accepted and the grant payment will be made for the duration of stay, on condition that any supporting documentation as may be available to evidence such circumstances are provided and accepted by National Agency.
  • Except in case of force majeure event, if student returns to his/her home country without completing the minimum period of mobility, activity shall be deemed null and void, and no grant payment shall be made.
  • Students shall receive grants only during their mobility period abroad. In case student returns to his/her home country earlier than the specified end date of the exchange period, s/he shall receive grant only for the period s/he stayed in the destination country.

 

  • CEPS IRO Office may ask student to provide a copy of his/her passport for the determination of the period spent abroad if deemed necessary.
  • Students can, if they wish, renounce the financial support. However, it is not possible to extend the mobility initiated as a grant without grant.
