The very best candidates for the PlantHealth master will receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship!

Application to an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship

Application to the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship is made through the online application tool during the regular application to the PlantHealth Programme.

Non-EU and EU students can apply for up to three Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees each year. However, a student can benefit only once from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. In the case that the applicant is selected for more than one EMJMD, he/she must decide which one he/she wants to follow.

More information about the Erasmus Mundus scholarships’ amounts here.
