The Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for Masters in Europe (Fall 2021 admission) is now open for applications. The closing dates vary from a program to another. The selected applicants will study each semester in a different nation and in a different institution they will as well do a Part-time internship as training in various countries.
Erasmus Mundus is a highly rated foreign study program that is provided by a number of European higher education institutions. The program grants European funded scholarship awards to the exceptional foreign students applying under annual selection rounds.
The study program length is from 12 to 24 months, and the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship provides the participation expenses to the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree including tuition fees, insurance, laboratory or library expenses, and any other expense that is required to take part in the chosen master’s degree.
So as to obtain this Erasmus Mundus Scholarship award, the candidate is required to first be admitted onto one of the courses and the study has to take place in at least two of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees program nations.
Different Types of Erasmus Mundus Scholarship:
There are two different EMMC scholarships that can be awarded to master’s students:
Category A scholarship awards: they can be granted to master candidates coming from a third world nation, not a resident of any of the 27 European union member nations, Iceland, Norway or Liechtenstein, nor have carried out their primary activity (studies, training, or work) for over 12 months over the last five years in one of these nations, and who are selected by EMMC consortia.
Category B scholarship awards can be granted to European master’s candidates and any other non-European master’s student chosen by EMMC but who do not satisfy the Category A criteria defined above.
If a candidate satisfies the eligibility criteria for both categories A and B (a candidate with double nationality for instance) he should choose a category, as they have the right to only benefit from one category of scholarship award.
