THERE WILL BE NO EUROPEAN FELLOWSHIPS SELECTION IN 2017

LOCALLY FUNDED FELLOWSHIPS ARE EXPECTED

TO BE INFORMED, KEEP AN EYE ON OUR WEBSITE !

Important eligibility criteria as mentioned in the Programme Guide (version of November 2013 ) of the Erasmus Mundus Programme.

 

Three different EMJD fellowships can be awarded to doctoral candidates:
 
-         Partner countries fellowships (previously called Category A fellowships - for non-European candidates):
This fellowship can be awarded to third-country doctoral candidates selected by EMJD consortia who come from a country other than a European country and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries. The only exception to this rule applies to third-country doctoral candidates who have previously received an Erasmus Mundus masters scholarship in order to follow an EMMC,
 
-         Programme countries fellowships (previously called Category B fellowships - for European "EU" candidates):
This fellowship can be awarded to European doctoral candidates selected by EMJD consortia as well as to any doctoral candidates selected by EMJD consortia who do not fulfil the Category A criteria defined above ("EU" means 28 EU countries plus Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey).
 

-          Some fellowships can be offered to West Balkans citizens, in case of "extra-funding" proposition from the EACEA.

 
Fellowship candidates fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both Partner and Programme countures fellowships - e.g. students with double nationality - must select the fellowship category of their choice. As a result, they are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of fellowship at a time.
 
The general condition for all categories is that the applicant has, or will have at the start of his/her PhD, a Master or equivalent university degree in the field of the NanoFar programme (therefore students in the final year of their Master/Diploma course are eligible, but they must provide proof of enrolment in their application).
 
Individual EMJD fellowships are awarded exclusively for full-time enrolment in one of the doctoral programmes. Individuals who have already benefited from an EMJD fellowship are not eligible for a second grant.
 
Doctoral candidates benefiting from an EMJD fellowship cannot benefit from other EU grants while carrying out their Erasmus Mundus doctoral activities.
 
Only candidates who have applied to and have been accepted by an EMJD consortium in accordance with its specific doctoral candidate's application and selection criteria are eligible for a fellowship.
 

Students/Doctoral candidates can apply for an Erasmus Mundus fellowship to the Erasmus Mundus Action 1 joint EMJD programme of their choice but the number of applications must be limited to maximum three different joint programmes.
