Grants and Scholarships

WU of­fers the fol­low­ing types of mobil­ity grants and schol­ar­ships for stu­dents in­ter­ested in study­ing or do­ing an in­tern­ship abroad:

Grants for an ex­change semester

All stu­dents nom­in­ated for an ex­change semester by WU’s In­ter­na­tional Of­fice have the possib­il­ity to ap­ply for a study grant. De­pend­ing on the des­tin­a­tion, this is usu­ally an Er­asmus+ grant or a Joint-Study grant (or, in the case of Switzer­land, a grant within the Swis­s-European Mobil­ity Pro­gram). These grants are designed to provide fin­an­cial sup­port, but will usu­ally not cover all the costs for your ex­change stay.

For cer­tain part­ner uni­versit­ies, lar­ger grant amounts are avail­able in the form of a CEE­PUS grant or an Er­asmus+ In­ter­na­tional Credit Mobil­ity grant. In some cases, these grants can cover the entire cost of an ex­change stay and can be ob­tained in­stead of, but not in ad­di­tion to, a Joint-Study or reg­u­lar Er­asmus+ grant.

The ap­plic­a­tion for all grants men­tioned above takes place after you have been nom­in­ated for an ex­change spot. More in­form­a­tion on each of the grants, such as grant amounts, min­imum re­quire­ments, and avail­ab­il­ity for spe­cific uni­versit­ies can be found below:

Please note: If you are the re­cip­i­ent of a fed­eral grant from the Aus­trian Study Grant Au­thor­ity, spe­cial rules ap­ply to you. Please con­tact us as well as the Study Grant Au­thor­ity dir­ectly to find out about your grant possib­il­it­ies.

Grants for an in­tern­ship abroad

WU stu­dents can ap­ply for an Er­asmus+ in­tern­ship grant. Er­asmus+ in­tern­ships can be com­pleted in one of the 28 EU mem­ber states, Iceland, Liecht­en­stein, Nor­way, FYR of Mace­do­nia, and Tur­key.

Grants for In­ter­na­tional Sum­mer Uni­versity pro­grams

Five grants are avail­able for every In­ter­na­tional Sum­mer Uni­versity pro­gram or­gan­ized by WU.
