Level of Grants to participants

The cost of the School per participant comprises three components:

  1. The Fees: 300 Euros

  2. The Living Expenses: 1000 Euros

  3. The Travel Expenses to and from the school location

Part or all of the Fees and Living Expenses above, as well as part or all of the travel costs may be reimbursed to participants eligible for grants that CERN has obtained from the European Union 6th Framework Programme.


The level of reimbursement of Living expenses and Travel expenses depends on the  nationality of the participant.

Principles of reimbursement per type of expenses


Fees The totality of the Fees, that is 300 euros, will be reimbursed to EU-eligible participants
Living expenses

A fraction ranging from 50% to 100% of the Living Expenses will be reimbursed to EU-eligible participants, depending on the nationality of the participant.


See below for the table providing the reimbursement fraction per country category.

Travel expenses A fraction ranging from 0 to 100% of the real travel expenses will be reimbursed to EU-eligible participants, depending on the nationality of the participant.

See below for the table providing the reimbursement fraction per country category.

Maximum amounts
The reimbursement will not exceed the maximum amount authorized by the EU-FP6 Marie Curie Actions. These amounts are based on the direct ("as the crow flies") distance between the working location of the student and the school location.

See below the table of maximum travel allowances from EU-FP6 Marie Curie Actions rules.

Proof of expenses
Reimbursement will only take place upon provision by the participant of the relevant transportation tickets and/or invoices. Such justification documents should unambiguously  indicate the amount paid  and the currency.

Eligible expenses
Only travel expenses using one main public transportation means (air plane, train, bus) can be reimbursed (
only economy class tickets may be reimbursed). Other types of expenses (e.g. travel expenses to reach the nearest  departing airport/station, or between the arriving airport/station and the final school location), and  other transportation means will not be reimbursed. Please note that administrative expenses associated with visas will not be reimbursed.

The travel eligible for funding must be from and to the place of activity (nearest airport/station) at the time of the school and Dubrovnik airport/station. If the place of activity at the time of the school is different from the place of activity declared at the registration time, selected participants should contact the school administration before making any firm reservation.
