Erasmus+ Funding and Grants
Erasmus+ funding in the European Union, during its 30 years of supporting the Erasmus+ programme, has enabled more than three million students and professionals from different European companies and institutions to carry out part of their traineeships, complete their studies or broaden their knowledge in another European country.
Currently, and during the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 funding period with 26 billion euros, more mobility opportunities for individuals and cooperation opportunities for organisations have been achieved than in previous years. Take advantage of this opportunity.
How and where to apply for Erasmus+ funding
Every year new opportunities for individuals or Key Actions for organisations are offered through a general call for proposals in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for individuals and organisations in these sectors. Funding opportunities are managed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) and National Agencies.

Steps and recommendations to obtain Erasmus+ funding:
First, contact us and tell us which Erasmus+ courses you want to study in Spain
The first thing you have to do is to choose which of our Erasmus+ courses for teachers you want to come and study in Spain with us at the European Erasmus School – Casa Al Andalus. Once you have chosen your course, it is time to send us your booking request using the form at the end of the course description clearly indicating the chosen course and number of participants. Please note that if you already have a full group of participants and you wish to combine two courses for two weeks in Spain we can arrange it. Our Erasmus+ courses in Spain are also published on the School Education Gateway platform.
Once your application has been reviewed and the course is scheduled and confirmed to start on the date indicated, we will contact you by email with your place reservation while you confirm that your Erasmus+ grant or funding has been awarded. We will get back in touch with you telling you how to pay for an early booking until the start of the course. We will also send you when the full course fee is due, prior to the start of the course.
Before applying for Erasmus+ funding, please see the General Call for Proposals
In each of the calls for proposals you can consult all its aspects such as: the objectives, a summary, the Actions offered, the eligibility criteria, the budget, the duration and the deadlines for submission of the different Actions of the Programme.
You must first access the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Platform and the Erasmus+ application section where you can find the different Erasmus+ Key Actions, which are managed by the Erasmus+ National Agencies of each member country. You can find them by the “opportunities” section or by a key action. At this point you can search for an organisation to check that it meets the participation requirement and has an Organisation ID (OID).
You can also apply for funding for Erasmus+ Actions through the EACEA or European Education and Culture Executive Agency rather than with one of your national agencies in your country.
Who can apply for Erasmus+ funding or a grant?
Individuals, whether students or professionals, cannot apply for Erasmus funding or grant on their own and must apply through an organisation or with other partners. If you are studying or working within an organisation involved in education, training, youth or sports you should contact them to be included in some of the applications for study grants or funding for key actions within the Erasmus+ programme.
In the Erasmus+ Programme Guide, you can consult the different funding options whether you belong to an Erasmus+ member country or a partner country.
How to register my organisation and how to manage the Erasmus+ Programme
The first step to register your organisation is to create a valid account known as EU Login. With the EU Login authentication service you will be able to access the different registration processes for the Action you wish to fund. These processes may vary depending on whether the activities are centralised, in which case they are managed for all EU Member States by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA or “The Executive Agency”), or whether they are decentralised activities, as is the case in most cases, and are managed by the National Agencies of each Member State.

Contact your national agency if you need help with registration and application forms for Erasmus+ funding
In order to obtain your PIC number or the new OID you will have to register your organisation in the participant portal by filling in among others the legal and financial forms. You will then need to submit your project via the application form and wait for your national agency to contact you to let you know if you have obtained your funding or grant.
