It is possible to apply for the allocation of different types of financial supports on the basis of the call to which the students participate. This preference must be indicated at the time of the application in the appropriate section of the Online Application Form.

* First call for application > with the possibility to take part in the selection of Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarships according to the selection criteria indicated on the page.

Note that those who do not qualify for Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarships in the first call for application will automatically enter in the second ranking list for any other financial support scheduled for the second call for application if this interest has been indicated in the appropriate section of the Online Application Form.



Students from all over the world are eligible for an Erasmus+ EMJMD scholarship provided that they fulfil the requirements stated here as well as the additional criteria pointed out in this page.

Distinction between Program and Partner countries due to different scholarship amounts awarded (see also the 12-months rule):

Program Countries include:

27 EU countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden AND Iceland, Liechtenstein, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Turkey Serbia and United Kingdom (as a participating country during the transition period, until 31 December 2020).

Partner Countries include all other countries.



EMJMD scholarships include the students' participation costs (including the tuition fees, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to the students' participation in the course), a contribution to student travel and installation cost and a subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the CLE Master’s program.

Contribution to participation costs (paid to the Consortium):

With "participation costs" we mean any compulsory administrative/operational cost related to the participation of the student in the CLE program (e.g. library, laboratory, tuition fees, insurance costs, etc.):

€ 6.000 > per year per Partner Country candidates

€ 3.000 > per year per Program Country candidates

- Students whose citizenship is one of the Erasmus+ Program Countries count as Program Country students. Students with a Partner Country citizenship who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (12-months rule) count as Program Country students.
- Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.

Contribution to the travel and installation costs (paid to the Student):

- The CLE consortium will verify the place of residence of the candidate. At the application stage, candidates are required to provide a residence certificate (issued in accordance with the candidate's municipality normal registration rules) and/or a certificate from the candidate's place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question. Both documents must state the candidate’s residence at the very moment of the application.
- A contribution to installation costs is offered only to students resident of a Partner Country (€ 1.000 per intake). It is an incentive to help covering the additional costs related to the issuing of visas, residence permits, etc. as well as the temporary accommodation needs upon arrival in the first hosting Consortium country and the subsequent mobility trajectories.

Contribution to subsistence costs (paid to the Student):

€ 1.000 per month for the entire duration of the CLE study program (23 months)

Contribution to subsistence costs are not given to:
- scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods (study /research /placement /thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence;
- to Partner Country scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods exceeding three months (indicatively the equivalent of 15 ECTS credits) spent in any Partner Country.

- 12-month rule: Students 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 a Programme Country, count as partner country students. The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline defined by the consortia of applying for a EMJMD student scholarship.
- EMJMD student scholarships cover the entire duration of the Master course and are awarded exclusively for a full-time enrolment in one of the course editions.
- Students who have already obtained an EMJMD scholarship or are former Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course scholarship holders are not eligible for an additional scholarship under the EMJMD action.
