Description: The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world.

all the other countries of the world (third countries).

The programme is addressed to:
Higher education institutions
Students having obtained a first degree awarded by a higher education institution
Scholars and professionals who lecture or conduce research
Staff directly involved in higher education
Other public or private bodies active in the field of higher education (only for Action 4, see description above)

The Action 2 - Scholarships of Erasmus Mundus programme is addressed to third-country graduate students / scholars who apply to and are accepted by selected Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses. Students apply to follow the Course, scholars apply to carry out teaching and research assignments and scholarly work in the institutions participating in the Course.

The Action 2- Scholarships is implemented through a two-step procedure:

Firstly, applicants apply to the Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses and Erasmus Mundus Masters consortia (of higher education institutions) select them. Applicants can apply to any of the Masters Courses selected under the Erasmus Mundus programme. If you would like to apply for a Scholarship, please see the list of selected Master Courses and consult the Coordinator directly. Each Selected Master Course has a ?project fiche? with respective details and contact persons, please consult the following website:
http://europa.eu.int/comm/education/programmes/mundus/projects/index_en.html Secondly, on the basis of this selection, Erasmus Mundus Masters consortia apply to the Commission for scholarships for the selected persons by proposing a list of potential grantees, including a reserve list which contains the same number of students / scholars as proposed for selection. The Commission will agree to the award of a specific number of scholarships; these are then paid to the individual grantees through the Masters consortia. These two steps will be repeated each year throughout the five-year period for which an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course has been selected.
