    The Eras­mus Mundus pro­gramme pro­vides attrac­tive schol­ar­ships to the best stu­dent can­di­dates apply­ing under annu­al selec­tion rounds, with a min­i­mum of 75% of the schol­ar­ships award­ed to can­di­dates from Part­ner coun­tries.

    Two types of Erasmus Mundus scholarships

    There are indeed two types of schol­ar­ships depend­ing on stu­dents’ nation­al­i­ty or residence:

    ThePro­gramme coun­tries schol­ar­shipsFor stu­dents with nation­al­i­ty from:
    Mem­ber States of the Euro­pean Union (EU): Aus­tria, Bel­gium, Bul­gar­ia, Croa­t­ia, Cyprus, Czech Repub­lic, Den­mark, Esto­nia, Fin­land, France, Ger­many, Greece, Hun­gary, Ire­land, Italy, Latvia, Lithua­nia, Lux­em­bourg, Mal­ta, Nether­lands, Poland, Por­tu­gal, Roma­nia, Slo­va­kia, Slove­nia, Spain, Swe­den;

    ThePart­ner coun­tries” schol­ar­shipsFor stu­dents from all the oth­er nation­al­i­ties, except for stu­dents with a Part­ner-coun­try nation­al­i­ty who are res­i­dents or have car­ried out their main activ­i­ty (stud­ies, train­ing or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Pro­gramme-coun­try (see the “12-month rule” explained below).

    The EPOG+ pro­gramme ben­e­fits from addi­tion­al Part­ner-coun­tries shol­ar­ships ded­i­cat­ed to stu­dents com­ing from eli­gi­ble coun­tries in spe­cif­ic “geo­graph­i­cal win­dows”(see table below).

    Stu­dents with a dou­ble nation­al­i­ty (of a Part­ner and of a Pro­gramme-coun­try) and ful­fill­ing the eli­gi­bil­i­ty cri­te­ria of both cat­e­gories must choose and spec­i­fy the nationality/category under which they sub­mit their schol­ar­ship appli­ca­tion. Accord­ing to the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion rules, stu­dents shall not apply to more than three Eras­mus Mundus Joint Mas­ter Degree at the same call. Stu­dents ben­e­fit­ing from an Eras­mus Mundus schol­ar­ship can­not ben­e­fit from anoth­er EU grant while pur­su­ing their Eras­mus Mundus Mas­ter’s studies. 

    Stu­dents with a Part­ner-coun­try nation­al­i­ty who are res­i­dents or have car­ried out their main activ­i­ty (stud­ies, train­ing or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Pro­gramme Coun­try will be con­sid­ered under this cat­e­go­ry (as a Pro­gramme-coun­try stu­dent). The five-year ref­er­ence peri­od for this “12-month rule” is cal­cu­lat­ed back­wards as from the sub­mis­sion dead­line of apply­ing for the Eras­mus Mundus scholarship.

    With­out prej­u­dice to high aca­d­e­m­ic stan­dards, in order to ensure geo­graph­i­cal diver­si­ty among stu­dents, no more than three of the stu­dents select­ed for a schol­ar­ship should have the same nation­al­i­ty.


    All appli­cants, wher­ev­er they come from, are eli­gi­ble for Eras­mus Mundus Joint Mas­ter Degree (EMJMD) schol­ar­ships pro­vid­ed they ful­fill the min­i­mum aca­d­e­m­ic require­ments, as stat­ed on the admis­sion page and with the fol­low­ing excep­tions and conditions:

    • Stu­dents who have pre­vi­ous­ly obtained an EMJMD schol­ar­ship or an Eras­mus Mundus Mas­ter Course or Eras­mus Mundus Joint Doc­tor­ate schol­ar­ship are not eligible;
    • EMJMD schol­ar­ship hold­ers can­not ben­e­fit from anoth­er EU fund­ed schol­ar­ship scheme to fol­low the same EMJMD course and this for the entire peri­od of the course.

    Amount of the Erasmus Mundus scholarship

    The Eras­mus Mundus schol­ar­ship includes stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion costs (tuition fees, full insur­ance cov­er­age and any oth­er manda­to­ry costs relat­ed to stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion in the course), a con­tri­bu­tion to stu­dent trav­el and instal­la­tion cost and a sub­sis­tence allowance for the entire dura­tion of the EMJMD study pro­gramme (23 or 24 months for the EPOG+ programme).

    Con­tri­bu­tion to sub­sis­tence costs1 000 euros per month for the entire dura­tion of the EMJMD study pro­gramme (23 or 24 months max­i­mum).

    Impor­tant: con­tri­bu­tion to sub­sis­tence costs will not be giv­en to the schol­ar­ship hold­ers for the EMJMD peri­ods (study/research/placement/thesis prepa­ra­tion) spent in their coun­try of res­i­dence, nor to schol­ar­ship hold­ers from a Part­ner Coun­try for the EMJMD peri­ods exceed­ing one trimester (i.e. 3 months or the equiv­a­lent of 15 ECTS cred­its) spent in any Part­ner Coun­try.

    In par­tic­u­lar, Eras­mus Mundus schol­ar­ship hold­ers from Part­ner coun­tries enrolled in Minors C1 and C2 will keep their schol­ar­ship dur­ing Semes­ter 2 (less than 4 months in Johan­nes­burg) but they won’t be able to keep their schol­ar­ship if they want to go in a Part­ner coun­try for Semes­ter 4.
    Con­tri­bu­tion to the trav­el and instal­la­tion costsFor schol­ar­ship hold­er res­i­dent in a Pro­gramme coun­try 1000 euros per year (for trav­el costs)
    For a schol­ar­ship hold­er res­i­dent in a Part­ner coun­try less than 4000 KM from Paris2000 euros per year (for trav­el costs) + 1000 euros (for instal­la­tion costs)
    For a schol­ar­ship hold­er res­i­dent in a Part­ner coun­try 4000 KM or more from Paris3000 euros per year (for trav­el costs) + 1000 euros (for instal­la­tion costs)
    Con­tri­bu­tion to the par­tic­i­pa­tion cost- 9 000 euros per year per Part­ner Coun­try schol­ar­ship hold­er
    - 4 500 euros per year per Pro­gramme Coun­try schol­ar­ship hold­er
    That means in par­tic­u­lar that all tuition and fees are cov­ered by the schol­ar­ship in the EPOG+ pro­gramme for schol­ar­ship holders.


    The first mon­ey trans­fer will occur only after arrival at the part­ner insti­tu­tion host­ing the stu­dent for Semes­ter 1.

    Other scholarships

    Note that oth­er schol­ar­ships than Eras­mus Mundus schol­ar­ships are avail­able for stu­dents who are not select­ed with a scholarship. 

    A list is pro­vid­ed by Cam­pus France. You can apply to the rel­e­vant schol­ar­ships in par­al­lel to the appli­ca­tion for the EPOG schol­ar­ships. In the appli­ca­tion form, you can ask a con­di­tion­al admis­sion depend­ing on whether you get (or not) a schol­ar­ship through oth­er fund­ing institutions. 

    For Minors B1 and C2, you may also look at the oppor­tu­ni­ties offered by the Ger­man gov­ern­ment, through­out the DAAD schol­ar­ships data­base. The Ger­man Aca­d­e­m­ic Exchange Ser­vice (DAAD) is one of the largest fund­ing organ­i­sa­tion in the world sup­port­ing the inter­na­tion­al exchange of stu­dents and schol­ars. Fur­ther­more, Ger­many has var­i­ous foun­da­tions sup­port­ing inter­na­tion­al stu­dents study­ing in Germany. 

    Among the pos­si­ble schol­ar­ship for the sec­ond year in Paris, we can men­tion that the Non-French stu­dents select­ed in the two-year pro­gramme will have the pos­si­bil­i­ty to apply to the Eif­fel schol­ar­ship for the sec­ond year in Paris. 

    Please note that for most of these schol­ar­ships, the appli­ca­tion shall made very ear­ly (often before or togeth­er with the appli­ca­tion to EPOG).

    We can also men­tion the clas­si­cal “Eras­mus+ mobil­i­ty schol­ar­ships”(not Mundus). Non-Eras­mus Mundus schol­ar­ship hold­ers (only) can apply for an Eras­mus+ grant. The grant can only be offered for the sec­ond year for stu­dents of the two-year pro­gramme (through­out the first-year uni­ver­si­ty). Il rep­re­sents approx­i­mate­ly €300 per month. The admin­is­tra­tion will inform you of the pro­ce­dure to apply for this type of scholarship.
