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.


Eligibility

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.

Students enrolled in one of the COMUE UBFC courses should contact the COMUE UBFC officers for information on how to apply for the Erasmus + study grant.


Submitting your application

Your grant application will be automatically taken into account once you have submitted the International office's online study abroad application form. There are no other steps to complete.


Submission deadline

  • 15th May if you are going abroad for the whole academic year or only the first semester.
  • 15th November if you are going abroad for the second semester.


Amount (year 2020/2021)

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.

Students enrolled in one of the COMUE UBFC courses should contact the COMUE UBFC officers for information on how to apply for the Erasmus + study grant.


The internship must:

  • be between 2 and 12 months;
  • take place in either a private or public organisation in one of the countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme.
  • For students going abroad for an internship during the 2020/2021 academic year, the dates of the internship must fall between 1st July 2020 and 15th September 2021.
  • For students going abroad for an internship during the 2021/2022 academic year, the dates of the internship must fall between 1st July 2021 and 15th September 2022.


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).

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.

Students enrolled in a COMUE UBFC programme must contact the agents of the COMUE UBFC to find out how to apply for the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Regional Council international mobility grant.

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;
  • complementary Erasmus+ grant for students with disabilities;
  • 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 as a degree-seeking student at the time of your application and during your mobility;
  • receive a bursary on social criteria from the French 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 Ministerial aid for international mobility (AMI - Aide ministérielle à la mobilité internationale) will be added to your basic CROUS bursary on social criteria;
  • 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 French Ministery of high education;
  • just like French students, all international degree-seeking students who are enrolled at 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 registered for one of the COMUE UBFC courses;
  • 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

Your request for ministerial aid will be treated at the same time as your mobility file for studies/internship.


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;
  • complementary Erasmus+ grant for students with disabilities;
  • 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 a cursus intégrés programme between the uB and the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, with the exception of those studying at bachelor and master level in cooperation with the University of Bologna.

The Franco-German University scholarship grants each chosen student, who studies in Mainz and also in Opole in the frame of Europa Master programme, 300 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.
  • Internship grant for students from the Franco-German Youth Office (Office franco-allemand pour la Jeunesse - OFAJ), which provides funding for young people doing an internship in Germany.
  • 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.
  • Agence universitaire de la Francophonie offers help for internships abroad.
  • Various organisations offer financial aid for very specific projects: research stays, thematic internships, cultural and linguistic discovery of a country, internships for young graduates,... In the majority of cases, these are mobilities that you can carry out outside of your studies at the University of Burgundy, but some of these scholarships can also finance your study or internship stay abroad as part of your training at uB, such as the Eole excellence scholarship from the Franco-Dutch network or the scholarship from the Franco-Bavarian University Cooperation Centre aimed at the students doing their studies or research internship in Bavaria.
  • 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.
