Master Scholarhsips: Erasmus Mundus Programme
The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union (EU) as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. The Erasmus Mundus programme is financed by the European Commission (EC) – the executive body of the EU – and comprises four concrete actions. This webpage only focuses on “Action 2”, namely the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship scheme for third-country students and scholars coming to Europe

WHAT is the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship?

The Erasmus Mundus Scholarships are grants aimed at encouraging and enabling highly qualified graduate students from third countries to follow selected Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses in Europe for the duration of 1-2 years.

Funds are also available for scholars to carry out teaching or research assignments and scholarly work at the institutions participating in the Erasmus MundusMasters Courses.

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships are exclusively reserved for Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses. In other words, it is not applicable for students and scholars who have been accepted by other master courses in Europe.

However, not all students who follow an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course will necessarily receive an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship. Each Erasmus Mundus Masters Consortium decides whichstudents receive a scholarship.

WHO are eligible to participate?
