Erasmus Mundus Scholarships - The Erasmus Mundus program is a co-operation and mobility programme.

The Erasmus Mundus program supports high-quality European Masters Courses, by providing attractive grants for students from around the world.

There are two types of scholarships depending on students’ nationality:

Moreover, specific “geographical windows” scholarships for applicants of specific countries are expected to be opened as for the new intake:

(i): Development and Cooperation Instrument (DCI); (ii): European Development Fund (EDF); (iii): Partnership Instrument (PI); (iv) Students from Asia should come as a priority from less developed countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Vietnam), but can come from other countries of the regions as well, except from China and India; (v) For Latin America at least 25% of the students must come from Lower Middle Income Countries (Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Paraguay), a maximum of 35 % of students from Brazil and Mexico together, and 40% should come from the following countries (Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela).

The scholarships are composed as following:

Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both type of scholarships – e.g. students with a double nationality – must select the Category of their choice. They are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at a time. According to the European Commission rules, students shall not apply to more than three Erasmus Mundus Masters courses at the same call. Students benefiting from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their Erasmus Mundus masters studies.

Without prejudice to high academic standards, in order to ensure geographical diversity among students, no more than two of the students selected for a scholarship should have the same nationality.
