This scholarship is provided with the support of the Erasmus Mundus programme of the European Union.
Erasmus Mundus (EM) scholarships are EU funded scholarships to support students regardless their country of origin to study selected MA programmes, including QEM.
The application to an EM Scholarship is done through the Online Application Form, at the same time when you apply for the QEM Master Program. You need to precise your wish to be considered as a Scholarship Applicant in Page C of File .
In order to make the program more attractive for Third-Country nationals, the amount of the full-study scholarship will be higher for Partner country students than for Programme country students. More specifically:
Erasmus+ Partner country students: students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries, i.e. non-EU countries with exception of Turkey, FYROM, Norway, Lichtenstein and Iceland AND who fullfil the residency & 12-month rule: 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. The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline.
The 12-month residency rule will not be applied to Partner country candidates who for various reasons and under various circumstances have sought refuge and received a refugee status in a Programme Country.
Erasmus+ Programme country students: Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (residency + 12-month rule) i.e. Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Programme Countries (EU 28) count as programme country students.
Turkey, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway entered the Erasmus+ Programme as "Programme Countries". Applicants who are nationals of these countries will be considered as Programme Country Students. This means that applicants from these countries have to apply as Programme Country Students (not as Partner Country Students) and will receive the corresponding scholarships.
Double Nationality: Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application. This means you can freely choose the Nationality under which you want to apply.
The awarded scholarships are exclusively for a full-time enrollment. Moreover, students benefiting from an EM-Scholarship cannot benefit from another Community grant while pursuing their studies within the QEM Master Program.
For the next academic year, the QEM Master Program will offer 6 scholarships for sure and a maximum of to 14 extra scholarships upon the validation of the EU.
