Equality for Mobility (EfM) - Equality for Mobility Scholarship
The Equality for Mobility (EfM) grant supports short-term mobilities for students with care responsibilities, students with disabilities, and/or students
with economic barriers - preferably without prior experience abroad - in order to create economic equity among students in
terms of mobility experiences.
Funding duration 2 days to 5 months (one semester)
Funding amount* is a maximum of 2.400 € (in addition to the International Scholarship or Erasmus+ Scholarship)
Equality for Mobility (EfM) can be applied for by regular students from the University of Applied Arts Vienna (no graduate students) exclusively in connection
with an application for the International Scholarship (“Auslandsstipendium”) or an Erasmus+ Scholarship**.
In addition to a positive confirmation of the planned project abroad (e.g. confirmation of a stay abroad at a university,
internship, research activity, etc.), one of the factor(s) for the granting of the (EfM) scholarship must be applicable and must be supported by detailed justification and any supporting documents:
- Childcare responsibilities / other caregiving responsibilities / support payments
- Impairment (disability, chronic physical or mental illness)
- Economic obstacles
- EfM application form (including justification and statutory declaration).
- Supporting documents by appropriate evidence****
- Application documents must be requested from the International Office and submitted by the respective deadline.
After completion of the project abroad, a confirmation/certificate and a personal report (max. 1 A4 page) must be submitted, otherwise the
grant must be reclaimed.
* Equality for Mobility (EfM) is distributed to applicants twice a year, transparently and on a pro rata basis according to the jury's decision, and is
subject to an internal maximum scale. Guidelines for a stay abroad of 3 months or more, whereby the granting of the scholarship
is in any case dependent on the budgetary means of the university: Low (800 € with child or impairment, excl. economic obstacles),
Medium (1.600 € economic obstacles without further factors), High (2.400 € at least 2 factors must apply).
** If a study stay or internship is funded by Erasmus+, the Erasmus+ grant will be applied for directly by the EU in case of care obligation and/or impairment of the student. In
this case, only funding in case of economic obstacles can be applied for from the EfM.
*** Declaration, CV and financial plan must be submitted additionally in connection with an Erasmus+ grant, as these documents
are already requested in connection with the “Auslandsstipendium”.
**** Evidence can be: Confirmation of the hardship fund of the Student Union within the last 3 semesters, study allowance,
proof of childcare or other care obligations, alimony payments, bank statements, study allowance, disability certificate,
medical certificate, etc.
