EU mobility scholarships for individuals.

If learners go abroad during their studies, they can take part in a mobility project organized by their vocational training institution.
But what is the possibility for those who are interested in a mobility project but their institutes don’t offer them? On this page, we present you how individual mobility is possible through so-called pool projects – a project form that has become firmly established in the Erasmus + Mobility in Vocational Education and Training in Germany.

In projects that enable individual mobility, vocational training institutions provide a pool of Erasmus + scholarships for individuals who wish to go to European countries for vocational learning. The projects are published all over Germany through the internship search on the portal for apprentices at www.machmehrausdeinerausbildung.de.

They enable individuals to participate in the Erasmus + program and to receive funding from the EU. The application has to be made by the institution that implements the Pool-Project supporting the individual mobility.
