The Global MINDS programme is co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters programme.  There are two types of scholarships available for each cohort:

  •  10 full scholarships that covers the participation costs and a stipend of 1400 EUR per month throughout the duration of the programme
  • 15 partial scholarships that covers the participation costs 

In order to be considered for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, applicants should include a request for funding and relevant justification in their supporting statement. Please see Application Procedures & Requirements for detailed instructions on how to apply.

The Selection Committee will decide on awarding scholarships based on the result of the evaulation of the application. Please see Student Selection for details on how applications are evaluated.

Self-financed students may be able to avail of other financial support, depending on their chosen mobility path.
