Erasmus Mundus Category A scholarships for third country (non-EU) students
Category A scholarships are expected to be worth €48,000 for the 2015-2017 programme. The fee is subtracted from the scholarship. There is free insurance for Mundus stipend holders.

The five-year reference period for this rule is calculated backwards as from the application submission deadline.

Category B scholarships can be awarded to any student who does not fulfil the criteria for a category A scholarship. The Category B scholarships are connected to the ‘Study Abroad’ programme at our non-European partners (Please find further details in the application form).
European students who are granted a Mundus scholarship will have to study module 5 and 6 in the spring semester at one of our global partner universities: University of California at Berkeley; University of Technology Sydney; and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (also Module 4 in Chile).
General EU rules for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship
Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both Category A and B (eg. students with a double nationality) must select the Category of their choice. As a result, they are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at a time.
Students must have obtained a first higher education degree before the course start of the Mundus Journalism.
Individuals who have already benefited from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship for a Master’s programme are not eligible for a second scholarship for another Erasmus Mundus Master’s programme.
Students benefiting from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship cannot benefit from another Community grant while pursuing their Erasmus Mundus Master’s studies.
