Apply for funding

Thinking about applying for funding? Make sure you've read our before you apply pages and checked when the next deadline is. Application deadlines for most activities happen once a year, although there are additional deadlines for youth projects.

Applications to take part in the programme across all sectors are made at an organisational level. Once an organisation has successfully applied for funding, individual participants can then apply through that organisation to take part.

The European Commission's Call for Proposals document - available on our key resources page - is published each year and provides high-level details on programme eligibility, award criteria and budgets. 

There are a number of different funding opportunities available under Erasmus+, please visit your relevant sector area for further support and guidance:
