Turkey, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway entered the Erasmus+ Programme as "Programme Countries".

- The contribution to the travel costs takes into account the residence (not the nationality!) of the scholarship holder.
- Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to the scholarship holders for periods (study/research/placement/thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence. In the case of QEM programme this means that residents from Spain, Germany, France, and Italy will get no contribution to their subsistence costs during the semester(s) that they are spending in their home country.
