Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Programme

The Euroculture consortium has no Erasmus Mundus scholarships on offer for the 2017 intake. The consortium is committed to reapply for an extension of the Erasmus Mundus grant programme but the procedure and late outcome of selection results does not enable us to offer grants for students starting in September/October 2017

 

Euroculture Erasmus Mundus student scholarships

The Erasmus Mundus Programme provides EU-funded scholarships for Third Country students and European students  who have applied to and have been accepted by the Euroculture Master Course. There are only a limited number of grants available each year. For 2017-2019, no grants are available.

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 coverage of insurance for 24 months.

The following eligibility criteria apply:

  • Scholarship students must have already obtained a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognised equivalent level of learning according to national rules and legislation in place.
  • Students who have already obtained an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) scholarship or are former Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course scholarship holders are not eligible for an addition al scholarship under the EMMC action. Students benefiting from an EMMC scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their EMMC studies.
  • Scholarship holders spending part of the EMMC course in their country of residence are not entitled to benefit from the monthly subsistence allowance for this period

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.

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.
