Other funding sources
Given the limited number of available EMJMD scholarships, we strongly encourage students applying to the NANOMED curriculum to look for and apply to other types of funding. Governmental scholarship agencies may therefore consider to fund highly motivated and excelling applicants to NANOMED. Below, we list some suggestions for external scholarships. If you have been offered a place in the NANOMED programme, our consortium could assist you in the application procedure of external scholarships where possible.
International bilateral agreements, CICOPS scholarships, Alma Mater Ticinencis Foundation, CSC (China), CONACYT (Mexico), etc.
We advise you to also use your network of fellow students, compatriots and knowledge about funding opportunities in your country of origin when looking for alternative scholarships. Via their websites, the different partner Universities of NANOMED also offer several suggestions, such as the IKY National Scholarship Foundation of Greece, the Eiffel (Campus France) and the MIEM USPC scholarships in France.
