A new threat to Erasmus scholarships?

BRUSSELS and VILNIUS – Erasmus students, participating in mobility exchanges in the second semester of the 2012-2013 academic year may do not receive sufficient funding from the national Erasmus administrating agencies. As according to the Lithuanan Education Exchanges Support Foundation the issue will not affect Erasmus students from Lithuania. European Commission Budget DG informed about insufficient contributions of members states to the 2012 budget of the European Union, which makes a direct impact to all expenses of the European Union. In order to ensure the stability of EU budget, including the stability of Erasmus student exchanges financing stability, the Council of the EU together with the European Parliament should revise the budget. Unfortunately this did not happen by far. Austria, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Finland, Netherlands and Sweden dismissed the proposal to increase own contribution to the 2013 budget by 6.8%, which is being explained by ongoing financial issues.
