Worth of Award
Contribution to participation costs
- for a scholarship holder from Erasmus+ PARTNER countries (“category A”): 6 000 € per year
- for a scholarship holder from Erasmus+ PROGRAMME countries (“category B”): 4 500 € per year. In addition to that, MARIHE consortium will apply a fee waiver for the remaining participation costs.
This means that, for both types of scholarship holders, the Erasmus Mundus scholarship covers all participation costs in MARIHE (12 000 € for the whole programme/two years).
Contribution to travel and installation costs
The contribution to travel and installation costs takes into account the country of residence of the scholarship holder at the time of application to the EMJMD. (As a proof of residence, MARIHE Consortium may ask from applicants residence certificates and/or certificates regarding the applicant’s occupational or educational situation.)
- for a scholarship holder who is resident of an Erasmus+ PROGRAMME Country: 1 000 € travel costs per year
- for a scholarship holder who is resident of an Erasmus+ PARTNER Country whose location is less than 4 000 km away from the Higher Education Institution (HEI) coordinating the EMJMD (in the case of MARIHE, this is Danube University Krems, Austria): 2 000 € travel costs per year plus a one-time payment of 1 000 € installation costs at the beginning of the EMJMD
- for a scholarship holder who is resident of an Erasmus+ PARTNER Country whose location is more than 4 000 km away from the Higher Education Institution (HEI) coordinating the EMJMD (in the case of MARIHE, this is Danube University Krems, Austria): 3 000 € travel costs per year plus a one-time payment of 1 000 € installation costs at the beginning of the EMJMD
Contribution to subsistence costs (“monthly allowance”)
- for all scholarship holders: 1 000 € per month for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme (for MARIHE: at least until graduation; 24 months maximum)
- Notice: Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods (study/research/internship placement/thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence, nor to scholarship holders from a Erasmus+ Partner Country for the EMJMD periods exceeding 3 months spent in any Erasmus+ Partner country.
The Erasmus+ Programme offers two categories of scholarships for participating in an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme (EMJMD):
A) Scholarships for scholarship holders from Erasmus+ PARTNER countries (scholarships of “category A“) can be awarded to applicants who
- are nationals of a country other than an Erasmus+ PROGRAMME country (see definition below) AND
- 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 one of the Erasmus+ PROGRAMME countries. The “last five years” are defined as the five years preceding the last day of February in the desired year of student intake.
B) Scholarships for scholarship holders from Erasmus+ PROGRAMME countries (scholarships of “category B“) can be awarded to applicants who
- do not fulfil the criteria for scholarship holders from Erasmus+ PARTNER countries defined above.
Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both categories – e.g. students with a double nationality – must select the category of their choice. As a result, they are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at a time.
For both categories, the further eligibility criteria apply:
- Students who have already obtained a EMJMD scholarship or an Erasmus Mundus Master Course/Joint Doctorate scholarship are not eligible to apply for an additional scholarship under the EMJMD action.
- EMJMD scholarship holders cannot benefit from another EU funded scholarship scheme to follow the same EMJMD course and this for the entire period of the course.
- Students can apply for an EMJMD scholarship to any of the Erasmus+ Erasmus Mundus courses of their choice, but are limited to a maximum of three different joint programmes per academic year.
