EMECS is part of the Erasmus+ Program starting from the 2017/2018 student intake. Under Erasmus+ we can offer a limited number of EMJMD scholarships for top ranked applicants. During the application process you can state if you also want to apply for a scholarship along with your application for the EMECS Programme.

What does an EMECS - EMJMD scholarship cover?

The EMJMD student scholarship for the EMECS programme includes:

  • A tuition waiver: this covers the costs for programme tuition, enrollment and health insurance

  • A monthly living allowance amounting to 1,000 EUR for the entire duration of the EMECS programme (24 months): this allowance is dedicated to covering your living costs while studying in EMECS

  • A contribution to travel and installation costs: this is meant to support your travel and settling at an EMECS location (e.g., flight airfare and visa fees)

    • 1,000 EUR per year: payable to scholarship holders with residence in Erasmus+ programme countries

    • 2,000 EUR per year for travel costs + 1000 € for installation costs: payable to scholarship holders with residence in a partner country which is located in a distance of less than 4,000 km from the EMECS Coordination Office (University of Kaiserslautern, Germany)

    • 3,000 EUR per year for travel costs + 1000 € for installation costs: payable to scholarship holders with residence in a partner country which is located in a distance of 4,000 km or more from the EMECS Coordination Office (University of Kaiserslautern, Germany)
