Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Programme
The Erasmus Mundus Programme supports European top-quality Master Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. Euroculture Master programme offers several Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2018 intake.
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 those applying to start in 2018, several grants will be available.
Please note that the 2018 application round for scholarships will take place between 1 October and 1 December 2017. Those who submit their applications later can only be considered as self-funding applicants.
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.
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 by the application deadline. That means that scholarship applicants must hold a higher education degree by 30 November 2017 to start the programme in 2018.
- 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 additional 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
- Students from partner countries (meaning all countries except EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro and Turkey) have not carried out his or her main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the Member States or the participating countries.
- Please note: for given academic year student candidates can apply for maximum three different joint programmes supported by the Erasmus Mundus scholarships (see the EMJMD catalogue).
External Windows 2018-2020
Some of the scholarships are tied to a specific region in the world, the so-called ‘External Window’ scholarships. We can nominate one student per window, after which the European Commission decides which of these nominated students will receive a scholarship.
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.
Please note that if your application is selected for Euroculture MA (proposed for a scholarship, put on the reserve list or enrolled on a self-paying basis), its data may be used for the purposes of evaluating the Erasmus programmes, efficiently managing Erasmus projects, and producing statistics. Data could be made available to the Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), the European Commission, the European External Action Service staff, as well as to other stakeholders of the Erasmus+ programme, such as Erasmus+ National Agencies, National Erasmus+ Offices and the Erasmus Mundus Student and Alumni Association.
