Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for 2015-17 edition

 

Erasmus Mundus scholarships will be awarded to students for each of the five editions of the EMMC. The number of scholarships for each category of individuals (students from Programme countries and Partner countries)  will be defined on a yearly basis and communicated to EMMCMSP  in the winter 2014/15. As an indication, this number will most probably vary between 9 and 13 student scholarships.

 

Partner countries (ex Category A) scholarships can be awarded to third-country masters students selected by EMMC

consortia who come from a country other than a European country (European countries are:  28 E.U. countries, the EEA-EFTA States,  EU candidate countries, as well as countries that intend to sign a cooperation agreement with EU for their full participation in Erasmus+)  and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in these countries.

Programme countries (ex Category B) scholarships can be awarded to European masters students selected by EMMC consortia as well as to any masters students selected by EMMC consortia who do not fulfill the Category A criteria defined above.

 

 

It should be noted that, while the partner countries scholarships (Category A) should be considered as “full scholarships” covering all necessary costs of the student during his/her study period in Europe, the Programme countries scholarships (Category B) have to be considered as a “financial contribution” to the student’s costs while following his/her EMMC studies.

 

Without prejudice to high academic standards, in order to ensure geographical diversity among students/scholars, EMMC consortia shall respect the following basic criteria when selecting students/scholars for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship:

– no more than three of the students selected for an EMMC scholarship should have the same nationality

no subsistence costs will be given to scholarship holders for study/research/placement/thesis preparation periods spent in their country of residence.

individuals who have already benefited from an EMMC scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another EMMC.

 

The scholarship amounts will be paid to the EMMCMSP in the context of the specific grant agreements issued for each edition of the course. It is the responsibility of the consortium to ensure that the scholarship is paid to the student/scholar in the following way:

 

 

For scholarship holders from Erasmus+ Programme countries

Cat B

For scholarship holders from Erasmus+ Partner countries

Cat A

Contribution to the participation costs

up to 4.500 € per year per scholarship holder from a Programme Country

up to 9.000 € per year per scholarship holder from a Partner Country

Any amount in excess of these maximum contributions must be covered by the participating organisations and cannot be charged to the scholarship holder

Contribution to the travel and installation costs

travel costs:

1.000 € per year per scholarship holder resident of a Programme Country

travel costs:

·   2.000 € per year per scholarship holder resident of a Partner Country whose location is less than 4.000 km away from the HEI coordinating the JMD

·   3.000 € per year per scholarship holder resident of a Partner Country whose location is 4.000 km or more away from the HEI coordinating the JMD

installation costs:

·       1.000 € per scholarship holder resident of a Partner Country

Contribution to subsistence costs

1.000 € per month for the entire duration of the JMD study programme (24 months maximum)

Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to scholarship holders for the periods of the JMD (study / research / placement / thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence

 

 

Amount I (Contribution to the student’s travel, installation, visa related costs and other personal costs) will have to be paid:

– For Programme countries and Partner countries, in the first period of  the beginning of the course, in two instalments (1st year of the course and 2nd year of the course)

 

 

Amount II (Maximum contribution to the EMMC participation costs - including insurance coverage) can be collected by the EMMC consortium directly on the condition that the student has signed a “student agreement” with the consortium in which the amount and the costs covered by it have been clearly indicated. Although the EMMC consortium is free to define the appropriate amount of participation costs to be charged to participating students, when determining these costs the consortium should bear in mind the maximum contribution to the EMMC participation costs included in the scholarship. If the tuition fees established by the consortium are higher than this amount, the consortium should grant the Erasmus Mundus scholarship holders a fee waiver for any fee amount in excess of this maximum contribution.

 

Amount III (Monthly allowance) must be paid on a monthly basis and in full to the student’s personal bank account.

 

With respect to the scholarship amount, “Participation costs” must be understood as any compulsory administrative/operational cost related to the participation of the student in the EMMC (e.g. library, laboratory, tuition, social security and insurance costs, etc.). Any other costs that may be charged in addition (e.g. for participation in fieldwork activities), being compulsory or voluntary, must be communicated to the candidate student at application stage.

 

The number of monthly allowances is calculated from the start to the end of the course and includes, if applicable, the summer break between two academic years.

 

 

All the Erasmus Mundus scholarships are tax-exempt.
