SCHOLARSHIPS

An average of 22 students per year will earn a one-year scholarship paid on a monthly basis (€1,000 /month for 12 months).

OTHER FUNDING

Beneficiaries of the EU scholarship will be awarded a contribution to travel costs (for all beneficiaries) and installation costs (only for partner countries residents) at the beginning of the BeInPM EMJMD programme. Said contributions are paid upon arrival at Archamps, where the BeInPM programme begins.

  • Contribution to travel costs (for all beneficiaries): €1,000
  • Contribution to installation costs (only for students residing in a partner country), depending on the distance from the student’s home, to UGA:
    • If less than 4,000 kilometres: €3,000
    • If more than 4,000 kilometres: €4,000

SELF-FUNDED STUDENTS

Selected students may be offered an admission as self-funded students, which means that they are not entitled to a scholarship, nor to the above-mentioned EU funding.
This may be justified by one of the two following motives:

  • The student is not high enough in the ranking of selected students,
  • The student is not eligible for an EMJMD scholarship because he/she has already received a scholarship for:
    • an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD), or
    • an Erasmus Mundus Master Course/Joint Doctorate.

In that case the tuition fee include the summer school, the insurance, and amount to:

  • €4,500 for an EU programme country national,
  • €9,000 for an EU partner country national.
