Financial support / Grants More information on study and placement grants for law students can be found at the website www.rug.nl/law/lep.

For studying in countries inside Europe students can apply for a grant from Erasmus+, which comprises of EU funds. Erasmus+ grants do not cover travel and residential expenses completely; they are merely a contribution towards the extra costs involved in studying abroad.
In 2017-2018 the Erasmus+ grant has been set at €150,-- to €270,-- per calendar month, depending on the country of your host university with a maximum of 5 months. This may change per academic year.

Your application for an exchange period at one of the Faculty’s partner universities also counts as your application for a grant. When you receive notification of a place for study abroad, you will also learn whether or not you have been awarded an Erasmus grant and receive more information on the Erasmus grant.
