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:
|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;
Non EU Programme-countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, United Kingdom.
|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.
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).
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.
