For the period from 2014 to 2020, 135 thousand grants for academic mobility with partner countries are planned. Grants are intended for students, teachers and university staff. Mobility for students means the possibility of studying and / or internship abroad in a partner institution for a period of 3 to 12 months. The amount of the grant for students is about 750-850 euros / month for EU countries (depending on the country), plus partial reimbursement of travel expenses. Mobility for teachers means teaching abroad at a partner university (Teaching) - at least 8 hours a week, and / or advanced training for teachers and university administration (Training) for a period of 5 days to 2 months. The amount of the grant for teachers ranges from 100-160 euros / day for EU countries (depending on the country), plus partial reimbursement of travel expenses.

To pass the selection, it is necessary to submit the following documents to the DICAM: a resume, a motivation letter (in English), a transcript with grades (GPA no lower than 3.0) in English)), proof of English knowledge and a letter of submission from the faculty (recommendation from the faculty).
