Apply for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Scholarship, 2022
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions. Students at Master’s level from all over the world can apply.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are high-level integrated study programmes at master level. The design and delivery of the programmes is through an international partnership of higher education institutions from different countries worldwide. The partnership may also involve other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the area of study.
The EU provides funding for these programmes and for competitive scholarships; which the programmes offer to the best student applicants worldwide.
- An EMJM enrols students at Master level who have obtained a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognised equivalent level of learning according to national legislation and practices in the degree-awarding countries/institutions.
- Students who have previously obtained an EMJM scholarship are not eligible to apply for an additional scholarship under the EMJM.
- EMJM offers scholarships to students from all over the world. However, consortia should ensure geographical balance.

This rule does not apply to top up scholarships for targeted regions of the world, if applicable.
