During the decision procedure, applications are assessed based on substantive assessment criteria. For example, the application must be in line with the aims of the Erasmus Trustfonds.

If support is granted, the grant letter states the amount granted and the requirements/conditions under which the grant is made. The transfer of the funds can only proceed after the requirements are met, as stipulated in the grant letter.
