Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) Scholarships
The next application session for EMJMD scholarships (recruitement for intake 2020-2022) will be different than our previous selections since the NANOMED Consortium will be applying for an extention of funding at the same time as the candidates will apply for the EMJMD.
The deadlines for the selection process will remain the same but the Consortium will get the confirmation from the EACEA of the exact number of scholarships available (if any) in June/July 2020. The Consortium will pre-select a number of students on a waiting list until the confirmation of the EACEA is official ; the ranking order of the students will be communicated in order to minimise the impact of this waiting period. Candidates should be fully aware of the financial costs of the programme, as there is no guarantee that they will be awarded an EMJMD scholarship at the moment. Please accept our sincere appologies for the inconvenience this may cause.
EMJMD scholarships include:
- Participation fees
- International health and accident insurance complying with at least the minimum requirements for Erasmus Mundus Master Courses. Currently, the insurance provided to the student is the PROTRIP-WORLD-PLUS insurance of Dr. Walter’s insurance company.

Important selection rules dictated by the European Commission regarding the payment of the scholarship:
Scholarship holders are not allowed to receive any contribution to subsistence costs if:
- Scholarship holders spend study/research/placement/thesis preparation periods in their country of residence (before starting the NANOMED EMJMD);
- Scholarship holders spend study/research/placement/thesis preparation periods in a Partner Country exceeding three months (indicatively the equivalent of 15 ECTS).
EMJMD scholarships will be awarded to the most outstanding applications according to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency’s (EACEA) distribution:
This table will be update as soon as the Consortium receives the confirmation of additional funding in June 2020
|Intake||Oct. 2017- July 2019||Oct. 2018- July 2020||Oct. 2019- July 2021|
|Programme country students||3||3||3|
|Partner country students||10||10||10|
The following rules prevail to define whether the applicant can be considered as coming from Programme or Partner countries:
Important selection rules dictated by the European Commission:
- 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.
