CONSORTIUM SCHOLARSHIPS

Consortium scholarships are planned for students from any geographical origin applying mainly within the First Call, financed by the FRP++ Consortium itself.

Consortium scholarships are organized as follows:

  • Up to two scholarships per academic year of 9 000 EUR (fully covering tuition fees)
  • Up to three scholarships per academic year of 6 500 EUR (partially covering the tuition fees)
  • Up to six scholarships per academic year of 4 500 EUR (partially covering the tuition fees)

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Only students who have applied to and have been accepted by the FRP++ Consortium in accordance with its specific students’ application and selection criteria are eligible for a scholarship.

Students with double nationality must specify the nationality under which they submit their application.

CONTRIBUTION TO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Contribution costs to individual needs of students with disabilities are also available by the EMJM FRP++. Therefore, the contribution costs for individual needs are eligible if they fulfil the general eligibility conditions. These contribution costs will be used for enrolled students (with or without scholarship) with disabilities (e.g. long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments), such as those related to the acquisition of special items or services (e.g. assistance by third persons, adaptation of work environment, additional travel/transportation costs).

OTHER SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOANS

Among other funding possibilities, there are government loans available. In order to apply for these many patrons require you to plan well ahead of your individual study schedule. We recommend starting scholarship applications 1,5 years ahead of the Master Application programme’s start.

ERASMUS+ MASTER DEGREE LOANS

Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans are EU-guaranteed loans with favourable pay-back terms. They are designed to help prospective students finance their Master’s courses in an Erasmus+ Programme country while leaving as little of a lasting economic footprint as possible.

The scheme is designed to provide postgraduate students with the means to pay their tuition and living expenses – thereby allowing individuals to focus on their degree instead of managing their bank balance. The programme aims to be as inclusive as possible, working under the following guidelines:

  • No need for collateral from students or parents – ensuring equality of access;
  • Favourable, better-than-market interest rates;
  • Pay-back terms that allow graduates up to two years to find work before beginning repayment;
  • Prospective Master students can receive a loan of up to 12 000 EUR for a 1-year Master (or equivalent amounts in foreign currency for banks in non-Euro countries, subject to exchange rates). Find more information at this link.

GOVERNMENT LOANS

To enrol in the FRP++ programme’s starting in October 2022 you can apply for government loans. Many of the current students in enrolled in Erasmus+ programmes are financed by these sources, as Erasmus Mundus scholarships are limited to only a few. Government loans usually cover living costs and tuition fees (at least partly).

Current students of Erasmus+ Programmes are financed by (among others):
