EMJMD scholarships coverage

The Scholarship covers the following category of costs:

Participation fees

The participation fees are entirely covered for students who are EMJMD scholarship holders; they are transferred to the Coordinator directly by the EACEA.

Monthly allocation

€1 000 per student/month covering life expenses for the whole duration of the NANOMED EMJMD (regardless of the country of origin)

IMPORTANT: The payment of the monthly allocation can only occur at the end of the first month so we kindly advise the students to anticipate their expenses upon arrival (paying for security deposit, for the rent, for transportation). Scholarship holders are not allowed to receive this allocation if:

  1. They spend study/research/placement/thesis preparation periods in their previous country of residence;
  2. They spend study/research/placement/thesis preparation periods in a Partner Country exceeding three months (indicatively the equivalent of 15 ECTS).
Contribution to the travel and installation
  • €1 000 per academic year per scholarship holder resident in a Programme Country for travel costs
  • €2 000 per academic year for travel costs + €1 000 for installation costs for a scholarship holder resident in a Partner Country located at less than 4 000 km from the coordinating Higher Education Institute
  • €3 000 per academic year for travel costs + €1 000 for installation costs for a scholarship holder resident in a Partner Country located at 4 000 km or more from the coordinating Higher Education Institute

IMPORTANT: the payment of the travel and installation costs allocation can only occur at the end of the first month of the programme so we kindly advise the students to anticipate their expenses on the first month of arrival (paying for security deposit, for the rent, for transportation)

Health & travel insurance

International health and accident insurance complying with at least the minimum requirements for Erasmus Mundus Master Courses. Currently, the insurance provided to the students is the PROTRIP-WORLD-PLUS insurance of Dr. Walter’s insurance company.

Important selection rules for EMJMD scholarships

  • Students with a double nationality from either a Partner or a Programme Country must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application
  • Geographical balance: a maximum of 3 students with the same nationality can be selected as scholarship holders per intake
  • Programme or Partner Country students can apply for no more than three EMJMDs each year. However, a student can benefit only once from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. If you already benefited from one, you can still apply to the NANOMED EMJMD as a self-funded student.
  • If the applicant is selected for more than one EMJMD, he/she must decide which one he/she wants to follow

Joining the EMJMD NANOMED as a Self Funded student – other sources of funding.

Students who do not obtain an EMJMD Scholarship may also reapply to us during the Self Funded application session. Given the limited number of available EMJMD scholarships, we strongly encourage applicants to look for and apply to other types of funding to cover their Participation Fees and living expenses.   Governmental scholarship agencies may therefore consider to fund highly motivated and excelling applicants to the NANOMED Master programme.

We advise you to use your network of fellow students, compatriots and knowledge about funding opportunities in your country of origin when looking for alternative scholarships (ex: international bilateral agreements, CONACYT (for Mexican students) and many other specific scholarships that can suit your study or career plan). You can also contact the Erasmus Mundus Association to seek advice from former Erasmus Mundus students.

There are also  scholarships which are linked specifically to our universities such as the MIEM scholarship from the University of Paris, and the MAECI (Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale) in Italy. Please look at the timing of applications for these scholarships (it may be necessary for you to apply for the scholarship before the Self funded application session opens). Additionally, Campus France offers the Eiffel scholarship in France (to apply to this scholarship you need to hand your application in November of the previous year).

You may also enquire in the French embassy of your country; several embassies sometimes offer scholarships to excellent students wishing to undertake their higher education in France.
