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 scholarships
There are indeed two types of scholarships depending on students’ nationality or residence:
|The “Programme countries” scholarships||For 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, United Kingdom;
Non EU Programme-countries: former Yugoslav, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Republic of Macedonia, Turkey.
|The “Partner countries” scholarships||For 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).|
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.
Amount of the 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).
