EMJM Scholarships

EMJM FLOURISH scholarships are offered to students from all over the world but in order to ensure geographical balance, no more than 10% of the total number of scholarships awarded during the project implementation should be awarded to candidates from the same nationality. 75% of the general scholarships are offered to students from Partner countries while up to 25% of the general scholarships will go towards students from Programme Countries. Another 4 students from other IPA/NDICI partner countries will be offered a place on each intake as part of the additional scholarships in the targeted regions of the world. In the case of the additional scholarships for targeted regions, preference will be given for outstanding, excellent or promising students coming from these regions, with the aim that in the long term they will become leaders in this area in their own communities and be able to contribute to the sustainable development of their country.

An average of 18 Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available each year for four intakes from 2023 to 2026.

The planned allocation for 2024 of the EMJM FLOURISH scholarships shall be for students from:

  • Programme countries: 3 scholarships
  • Partner Countries: 11 scholarships
  • Specifically targeted regions: 4 scholarships

The Erasmus Mundus scholarship has a value of EUR 1,400 per month, for a total duration of 24 months. The scholarship will be a contribution to the costs incurred by the beneficiary students and shall cover travel, visa, accommodation installation and subsistence costs. In addition, the tuition fees for scholarship holders are waived.

The scholarship is conditional to students’ compulsory physical mobility and presence at the partner universities. Late arrivals will lead to a pro-rate reduction. Beneficiary students will receive Euro 2,800 equivalent to 2 monthly instalments upon arrival in Malta. Subsequent scholarship payments will be done monthly in advance.

Students who have previously obtained an EMJM scholarship are not eligible to apply for an additional scholarship under the EMJM FLOURISH. 

Students with special needs are entitled may apply for additional support by submitting a request to the coordinating university providing a:

– Declaration with an estimate of the costs, and supporting documentation that their participation in the action would not be possible without the special needs items or services;
– Declaration that the special needs items/services are not already covered from another source;
– Certification by a competent national authority of the long-term impairment.
