If  a student comes from a disadvantaged socio-economic environment, it is possible to raise the scholarship by 200 euros/month. The application must be submitted at the European Office of the Rectorate of Charles University.  

For study stays under bilateral agreements with Swiss universities, students receive a scholarship of 350 euros/month from Charles University and 440 CHF contribution from the Swiss government.


The aim of Green Erasmus is to raise mobility participants' awareness of environmental issues and to implement projects in an environmentally sustainable way.

Eligible means of transport to / from the receiving foreign institution are train, bus, boat or shared car.

The main part of both trips must be made by one of the above means and the participants must keep evidence of such a trip (a ticket).

The one-off contribution is EUR 50.

In the case of the "shared car" option, it must be a carpool. In this sense, a case where someone will take you to the place of mobility and return without you is not considered a carpool.

It is necessary to provide a solemn declaration with the signatures of all persons who shared the transport and proof that the journey actually took place (petrol receipt, tolls, etc.).

If you wish to claim this allowance, please fill in the attached "amendment" (without the amount) and after returning from Erasmus, please bring it together with the original Confirmation of Erasmus Period and the necessary documents to the European Office.

Office hours of the European Office (Rectorate of Charles University, 1st floor, door 112 - Pavel Knap, Petra Šmídová):


The form is filled in when signing the participation contract and the contribution is paid simultaneously with the scholarship before the mobility. The contribution cannot be processed during and after returning from mobility.

After returning from mobility, send copies of tickets to
