Stipends, Travel & Admin
What costs does the programme cover?
The programme covers accommodation, travel & living costs in the form of a stipend. For 2020 and 2021 edition, due to Covid pandemics, travel will not be organised and therefore not covered. However, PRACE is looking forward to support students financially during the programme run.
How much will the stipend be?
The stipend will vary depending on placement location. It will be enough to cover food and living expenses in that country for the duration of the programme. Should you be successful in your application, you will be able to discuss further details with your host site before accepting your place.
Do I need a visa?
Visas may be required depending on nationality and placement location. Support in getting a visa will be provided by the host site through a letter of invitation. EU nationals going to EU countries do not require visas.
Will visa fees be covered?
Application fees for visas will be reimbursed.
Do I need travel insurance or health insurance?
We recommend that you take out travel insurance, many companies offer “working holiday” coverage for students. Health insurance may be required for a Visa, please check your specific case with the relevant embassy should you be offered a place. Participants with EU nationality should obtain a European Health Insurance Card. http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559
How will the stipend and travel expenses be paid?
Due to pandemics started in 2020 and continued in 2021 the program runs fully online. Otherwise, in normal circumstances, individual host sites would arrange disbursements. Should you be successful in your application, you will be able to discuss further details with your host site before accepting your place.
