What is the Erasmus Mundus scholarship?

Erasmus Mundus is Europe's biggest master's scholarship program. It helps the continent's eight best universities attract top students from developing countries and increase the awareness of their master's programs.

An Erasmus Mundus scholarship supports master's students looking at European issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, particularly the interplay of cultural, political, societal, and contemporary historical issues in a global context.

Each year, up to 100 students are awarded the Erasmus Mundus scholarship. Lucky scholarship recipients can live in at least two European countries and study at three universities worldwide.

When does the application process open for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship?

The Application window for the Erasmus Mundus master's degree scholarships opens in October and closes in January each year. Most master's programs start in September of the same year.

Once you have the required documents for your Erasmus Mundus scholarship application, you must upload your information on the online application system. You will need to create a new account on the Euroculture website before commencing your application.
