Deadline for applications

The complete application documents must be submitted at least one month before the start of the internship. A processing time of approx. four weeks should be expected.

Neither the application nor the internship periods are tied to semester periods, i. e. a scholarship can be applied for throughout the year.

Required insurances

No insurance cover is associated with an Erasmus+ scholarship. Neither the EU Commission, the National Agency DAAD nor the Agency for International University Mobility Rhineland-Palatinate are liable for damage resulting from illness, death, accident, personal injury, loss or damage to property in connection with an Erasmus+ stay abroad.

The Agency for International University Mobility Rhineland-Palatinate is obliged to ensure that the recipients of funding have adequate insurance cover. For this reason, it is necessary that you provide information on health, liability and accident insurance in the application form.

Participants should be in possession of a European health insurance card. This free card gives you access to medically necessary public health services in EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, under the same conditions and costs as the citizens of the respective country. Further information can be found at ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp.

For internships/internship stays, it is compulsory to take both accident and liability insurances for damage suffered by the beneficiary at work.

All participants in the Erasmus+ program (including graduates) have the option of being included in the group insurance of the DAAD, which offers comprehensive insurance cover.
For further information, please contact the DAAD Insurance Office.
