University of Burgundy

Financial aid

Financial supports are available to help eligible students who would like to go abroad for an exchange or an internship.

Make sure that you have enough financial resources before you leave. Even if you are eligible for one or more grants or bursaries, the money may not be transferred to you until several months after you leave France.

This delay is due to the financial and administrative processing of your application. Therefore, you must make sure that you have enough money available both prior to and when you arrive in the country to pay for costs such as your travel, housing deposit and rent, as well as public transport, food shopping, books and monthly bills such as electricity and water. You can also ask for an international bank card before going abroad.

All French and international degree seeking students who will study abroad within the Erasmus+ programme, and who complete their application before the deadline, will receive an Erasmus+ study grant from the European Union.

  • Ministerial aid for international mobility (Aide ministérielle à la mobilité internationale);
  • CROUS bursary determined by social criteria.

  • Franco-German University scholarship (Aide à la mobilité de l'Université Franco-Allemande - UFA)


Eligibility


Applications for Erasmus+ internship grants are open to all French and international degree seeking students registered at the University of Burgundy, starting from first year of bachelor degrees, who have an internship to complete. However, the number of bursaries available can be limited.

The internship must:

  • be between 2 and 12 months;
  • take place in either a private or public organisation in one of the 31 countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme;
  • take place between the 1st of June 2017 and the 15th of September 2018, for students who go abroad as part of the academic year 2017/2018.


Ineligible organisations to work in as part of the Erasmus internship programme:

  • EU institutions;
  • organisations which manage European programmes (in order to avoid potential conflict of interests or double financing);
  • the national diplomatic representation (i.e. embassy) of the student's country of origin in the host country.


In line with the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, students receiving Erasmus+ grants cannot spend more than 12 months abroad per study cycle.

  • You can combine Erasmus+ internships and Erasmus+ studies but their total duration must not exceed 12 months per study cycle (bachelor = 1 cycle, master = 1 cycle, PhD = 1 cycle).
  • There is an exception for students studying medicine: students of medicine can spend up to 24 months abroad throughout all of their study cycles combined.
  • Students who have already completed an Erasmus internship or exchange programme within the framework of the prior Erasmus programme (before 2014/2015) can complete new mobilities under the condition that their stay abroad does not last longer than 12 months per cycle. This includes mobilities both before and after 2014/2015.

Don't forget that your Erasmus+ mobility can be combined with other types of mobility proposed by the University of Burgundy. If you have already spent 12 months abroad with the Erasmus+ programme, you can also go abroad for another exchange programme or an internship outside of the Erasmus programme.

The deadline for submitting these documents is the 30th September.

Combining your bursaries and grants


The Regional council's bursary for international mobility can be combined with:

  • the Erasmus+ grant for studies;
  • the Erasmus+ grant for internships;
  • Ministerial aid for international mobility (Aide ministérielle à la mobilité internationale)
  • CROUS bursary determined by social criteria;
  • Franco-German University scholarship (Aide à la mobilité de l'Université Franco-Allemande - UFA).

If you are receiving any other bursaries, make sure you find out from the Regional council as well as the concerned organisations if you can combine them with that of the Regional council.


Eligibility


To obtain this financial aid you must:

  • be registered at the University of Burgundy at the time of your application and during your mobility;
  • receive a bursary from the national Ministry of higher education (including grade ''0 bis''), or, benefit from an annual emergency aid, allocated by CROUS according to the specific conditions at that moment. During your stay abroad, the Ministry of higher education's bursary (AMI) will be added to your basic CROUS bursary;
  • be completing a study exchange programme or internship abroad, as part of your degree, for a minimum of 60 consecutive days;
  • be in the process of completing your degree (bachelor's, master's, DUT...) : a national diploma credited by the Ministery of high education;
  • just like French students, all international degree seeking students who are enrolled at the uB are potentially eligible for this aid provided that they fulfil the conditions mentioned here above.


Ineligible candidates:

  • students who receive a prêt d'honneur (a no interest loan given to those in certain circumstances);
  • PhD students;
  • students doing DU diplomas or DUETI;
  • students who have already received the maximum amount allowed from this aid which is 3.600 euros during their previous stays abroad.


Applying


Applications for Ministerial aid are made through the International office's online application form for international mobilities. When you fill out the form, you must select that you will receive a CROUS bursary during your international mobility so that your request will be automatically taken into account.


Please only fill in one mobility application.
For example:

  • If you are going abroad as part of an Erasmus+ exchange programme, you need to fill in the International office's online form for studies abroad. It is in this same form that you will automatically apply for both grants: Erasmus+ grant for studies and Ministerial aid.
  • If you are going to do an internship abroad and wish to apply for the Ministerial aid grant and the Erasmus+ grant for internships you only need to fill in the application form once.

Don't forget to specify in your application form that you will receive a CROUS bursary even if you have not yet received the official response from CROUS. If it is confirmed that you will receive a CROUS bursary, you must upload the official bursary statement as soon as you have received it. Students who are going abroad to complete an internship must also upload their internship contract to their account. If you do not upload this document your request will not be considered.

Submission deadline


You must confirm that you will receive a CROUS bursary, and upload your official CROUS bursary statement before:

  • 15th November 2017 if you are going abroad between the 1st July 2017 and the 31st of December 2017;
  • 15th March 2018 if you are going abroad between the 1st January and the 30th June 2018.

Students completing an internship must also submit their internship contract before these dates.

Any application made after these dates will not be taken into account.

Amount


The amount can depend on several factors:

  • the destination country;
  • the length of your international mobility;
  • the total number of applications made;
  • the budget attributed to the University of Burgundy by the Ministry of higher education.

Ministerial aid is not systematic and the number of months you spend abroad does not necessarily correspond with the number of monthly installments you receive. Generally speaking, uB allocates at least 2 and never more than 4 monthly installments of 400 euros to each student eligible for Ministerial aid. This will remain the same as long as administration of the aid doesn't change: providing that the number of eligible students and the allocated budget continue to be stable and proportionate.

If you carry out several international mobilities during your course of studies, you are entitled to apply for the grant several times. Even if you have already received ministerial aid within another French higher education institution, you can make a new application through the University of Burgundy. But be aware that the total sum a student can receive throughout their entire course in higher education cannot exceed 9 monthly installments of 400 euros each.

Combining Ministerial aid with other bursaries


Ministerial aid can be combined with:

  • CROUS bursary determined by social criteria;
  • the Erasmus+ grant for studies;
  • the Erasmus+ grant for internships;
  • Regional council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté's bursary (bourse de mobilité internationale du Conseil régional de Bourgogne-Franche-Comté);
  • Franco-German University scholarship (Aide à la mobilité de l'Université Franco-Allemande - UFA).


The Franco-German University mobility bursary (Aide à la mobilité de l'Université Franco-Allemande - UFA) is aimed at French and international degree seeking students who are studying an cursus intégrés programme between the uB and the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, with the exception of those studying at bachelor and master level with the University of Bologna.

The Franco-German University scholarship grants each chosen student, who studies at a partner university, 270 euros each month for a maximum of 10 months.

Aside from the bursaries already listed, you can do your own research to find other financial sources for your period abroad.

Examples

  • Mobility bursaries offered by the ministry of your country of origin.
  • Mobility bursaries from your own regional council, from your general council or from the local town council of your principal home town in France or in your home country.
  • Financial support for internships, including internships abroad, from the Chenôve Town Council.
  • The CRIJ society publishes other available bursaries on their website.
  • Societies who offer bursaries, for example, The Rotary Club Dijon offers bursaries that students in difficult situations can apply for if they have an internship project to complete abroad.
  • Financial aid from the embassy of your destination country in France.
  • Agence universitaire de la Francophonie offers help for internships abroad.
  • Loans and bursaries are offered by certain French banks for their clients.

If you are going to be receiving another bursary which is not an Erasmus+ grant, Ministerial aid or the Regional council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté's bursary, you must check that the bursary in question can be combined with the other bursaries that you will receive.
