Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

The Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarships are provided with the support of the Erasmus+ EMJMD programme of the European Union. They are EU-funded scholarships to support students, regardless of their country of origin and residence, to study selected MA programmes, including QEM.
The starting and ending dates of the call for application to the EMJMD scholarships appear on this page. You can apply for the EMJMD scholarships. Selection criteria are made according to the creteria presented in the following page.

The application to an EMJMD is made through the Online Application Form, at the same time when you apply for the QEM Master Program. You need to be precise about your wish to be considered as a Scholarship Applicant in the approriate section [Page C of the Statement of Purpose document (File [2])].

To make the program more attractive for Third-Country nationals, the amount of the full-study scholarship will be higher for Partner country students than for Programme country students. More specifically:
 

  • Erasmus+ Partner country students: students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries, i.e., non-EU countries except Turkey, FYROM, Norway, Lichtenstein, and Iceland; and who fulfill the residency & 12-month rule: 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 a Programme Country. The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backward as from the submission deadline.
  • Erasmus+ Programme country students: Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (residency + 12-month rule), i.e., Students whose nationality is one of the 28 European counties: Erasmus+ Programme country students: Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfill the Partner Country criteria defined above (residency + 12-month rule), i.e., Students whose nationality is one of the 28 European counties: Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom, AND Iceland, Liechtenstein, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Turkey, and Serbia.

Warnings regarding our master economics scholarship :
  1. The contribution to the travel costs considers the residence (not the nationality!) of the scholarship holder.
  2. Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to the scholarship holders for periods (study/research/placement/thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence.
