EMJMD scholarships coverage

Participation fees

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

Monthly allocation

€1 000 per student/months 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 of the programme 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 student’s first destination within the NANOMED Consortium
  • €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 student’s first destination within the NANOMED Consortium

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 beneficiated 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

Other funding sources

Given the limited number of available EMJMD scholarships, we strongly encourage applicants to look for and apply to other types of funding. 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.

If you have been selected in the NANOMED programme, our Consortium might also assist you in the application procedure for external scholarships specifically linked to our unviersities such as the IKY National Scholarship Foundation of Greece, the Eiffel scholarship (Campus France) in France (to apply to this scholarship you need to hand your application in November of the previous year), the MIEM scholarship from Paris Descartes University, the MAECI (Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale), Alma Mater Ticinencis Foundation and the CICOPS scholarships in Italy.
