The student grant covers the participation costs, a monthly allowance for living costs and a contribution to travel and installation costs. Each grantee will receive EUR 1,000 each month for living costs during the 24 months duration of the programme. The scholarship also includes a contribution to travel and installation and any other type of costs to be paid in two installments, as well as the Euroculture participation costs of EUR 9.000 (EU students) / 18.000 (non-EU students) including health insurance coverage 24 months.

Erasmus Mundus scholar scholarships

Scholarships will also be awarded to scholars enrolled in Third-Country institutions who will be selected by the Euroculture Erasmus Mundus consortium to contribute to the joint programme.

Erasmus Mundus Master Course

In 2005 the Euroculture Master was selected by the European Commission among one of the first Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses (EMMC), for which the Euroculture consortium received funding from 2006 to 2011. It has again been selected for 5 years of funding in the second phase of the Erasmus Mundus Programme, which covers the period 2012-2017. Euroculture has once again been selected as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Course in 2017, which means there will be grants available to those starting the programme in 2018, 2019 and 2020. 

The Erasmus Mundus Programme supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. It fosters cooperation between higher education institutions and academic staff in Europe and Third Countries with a view to creating poles of excellence and providing highly trained human resources. Joint programmes must involve mobility between the institutions of the consortium and lead to the award of recognised joint, double or multiple degrees to successful students / doctoral candidates.
