Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for Students
APPLICATION THROUGH THE CoMEM PROGRAMME
A limited number of Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available for students accepted to CoMEM. The CoMEM universities select candidates in a competitive process from among eligible applicants, and forward the names to the European Commission for approval under the Erasmus+ Programme. Please note that candidates DO NOT apply directly to the Commission for funding. All applications are to be made directly to the CoMEM programme through the Coordinating University, NTNU. The process and basis for a receiving a scholarship is: 1) application 2) acceptance to the programme and then 3) selection for a scholarship.
Candidates who are awarded an Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus scholarship are required to complete the entire 2-year long CoMEM program, and will receive their degrees only upon completion of the full program. Completion of year 1 alone, for instance, will not be recognized with a degree.

Individuals who have already benefited from anErasmus+ (or equivalent) scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another Erasmus+ Master Course.

Candidates who wish to be considered for an Erasmus+ scholarship must indicate this in both the online application form and the additional CoMEM specific pdf application form.
Scholarship applicants must provide all relevant information for the consortium to determine scholarship category, particularly information on citizenship and residence in the past five years.
