Scholarships

 

  • General conditions

  • Students can apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship to the Erasmus Mundus Action 1 joint programme (EMMC) of their choice but the number of applications must be limited to a maximum of three different joint programmes (EMMC and EMJMD together).
  • Students who have already benefited from an EMJMD scholarship or an Erasmus Mundus Master Course scholarship are not eligible to apply for a second scholarship for the same or another EMJMD programme.
  • Only candidates who have applied to and have been selected by the WINTOUR Consortium in accordance with its specific application and selection criteria, will be eligible for an Erasmus+ scholarship in WINTOUR. The European Commission confirms this selection and officially assigns the scholarships.
  • Students benefiting from an EMJMD scholarship cannot benefit from another European Union grant while pursuing their master's studies.
  • Students who are nationals of Programme Countries (all countries within the 28 EU Member States, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey) are not eligible to apply for an EMJMD Partner Country scholarship.

Students can follow the WINTOUR Programme as self-funded students or they can apply for one of the several Erasmus+ scholarships (EMJMD action) available. These scholarships are designed to cover some of the expenses students incur throughout the entire duration of the WINTOUR course, which is 2 years.
