The former Languedoc-Roussillon region grants each year a global envelope to higher education institutions, which decide on the amount and the award criteria. It is therefore necessary to contact each institution’s international relations department to find out the details.
As an example, the aid granted to the Paul Valéry University in Montpellier is 900 € when the student is doing an exchange semester and 1,800 € if he or she is going for a full year. All students who wish to go on mobility, with no income ceiling.
