These grants exist in addition to other programs such as the Erasmus+ for European Mobility.
With the creation of the International Network of Michelin Cities in 2017, Clermont-Ferrand expanded this program and was able to award grants for 8 sister cities to 36 partner cities.
Every student who benefits from a mobility grant has to share his/her experience the year after, for example during a mobility event, through an article or by helping students to find an internship abroad.
In 2019, 89 students from Clermont-Ferrand (52 women and 37 men) will benefit from this stipend to study or intern in 12 cities from 9 countries: Montreal (15), Regensburg (15), Norman (12), Salford (9), Aberdeen (9), Santiago de Quéretaro (9), Shangaï (6), Oviedo (4), Braga (4), Bangkok (3), Valladolid (2) & Hamburg (1).
The Top 3 countries requested by students from Clermont-Ferrand are the United-Kingdom, Germany and Canada.
Thanks to this subsidy for international mobility, Clermont-Ferrand enables students to discover its partners all over the world thus tightening the links between our cities.
