Brief description:

The European Union offers fully-funded Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for Masters programmes and Doctorate programmes to students coming from developing countries.

These scholarships are exclusively awarded to students that have been selected to attend one of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes at Masters or Doctorate level.

Host Institution(s):

European Universities/Institutions participating under approved Erasmus Mundus Action Joint Programmes.

Field(s) of Study:

For 2013-2014, about 138 Masters courses and 42 Joint Doctorate courses are supported by scholarships. The field(s) of study covered are: Agriculture and Veterinary, Engineering, Manufacture and Construction, Health and Welfare, Humanities and Arts, Science, Mathematics and Computing, and Social Sciences, Business and Law.

Number of Awards:

From the period of 2009-2013, about 5,300 Masters students and 440 Doctoral students from developing countries will be awarded with an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship.

Target group:

Students from developing/emerging countries who do not come from the 27 Member States of the EU 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 one of these countries.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

The programme offers full-time scholarships and/or fellowships that cover the living costs, tuition fees, travelling and insurance costs of the students.

Scholarship amounts can vary according to the level of studies/teaching/research, their duration (3 months to 3 years) and the grantee’s nationality (scholarships for non-EU individuals are higher than for EU individuals).


Please note that each Erasmus Mundus Joint Programme defines its own selection criteria and admission procedures. Students or scholars should contact the Consortium offering the Masters /Doctoral Programmes for more information.

Application instructions:

For the academic year 2014/2015 you are advised to consult in advance the websites of each of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes (Masters/Doctorates) that interest you. There you will find all necessary information concerning the content of the course, its structure, the scholarship amounts as well as the application and selection procedures. Deadline varies from program to program. The deadline varies per programme but is around October to January annually.

It is important to visit the official website (link found below) for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.

Contact information:

Since each individual joint programme consortium is responsible for its own application and selection procedures (and timetable), interested candidates should consult the relevant website in order to take notice of these procedures. If necessary, they should contact the consortium for further information.

You will find further information on the Action 1 of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes in the updated version of the “frequently asked questions” (FAQs).
