Option A: Erasmus Mundus scholarships 

We're currently applying for the Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2018 to continue awarding Erasmus Munuds scholarships to our future generations as we have been doing for ten years now since the establishment of our Consortium. In June 2018 we will learn from the EACEA whether we will be financed or not for the next 3 intakes, including the forthcoming one starting in September 2018. Thus, if we are successful, the 21 selected applicants will be awarded a full Erasmus Mundus scholarship, as per the amounts specified above.

Option B: Consortium scholarships [subject to availability of funding from sponsors]

If we shouldn't be selected for Erasmus Mundus scholarships (TBA in June 2018), selected students will be awarded a Consortium scholarship. The awarding of such scholarships will be subject to availability of funding from sponsors and will be confirmed by the end of June 2018.

As shown in the chart above, we are offering two types of Consortium scholarships:

  • Full scholarship (5 available), closely comparable to the Erasmus Mundus one, in as much as it offers full cover of the participation costs, same montly allowance and refund of travel costs;
  • Part-scholarship (16 available), which offers full contribution of the participation costs, but half the montly allowance. Such amount will nevertheless be enough to ensure beneficiaries to study and live decently in Europe.


Additional awarding criteria


  • Students shall pass all the exams by the end of each semester and defend their Master's thesis at the end of the fourth semester, otherwise they will be excluded from the MathMods programme.
  • Students will lose their scholarship if at the end of a semester they have not completed all their exams gaining a semester-GPA greater or equal to 3 out of 4.
  • No more than 3 students selected for scholarship can have the same nationality.
  • In addition to the application for MathMods, candidates can only apply to maximum 2 Erasmus Mundus joint programmes for the 2018 intake.
  • The MathMods Consortium will ensure that all candidates proposed on the main or the reserve lists fulfil the 12-month rule:
    Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country are considered as Partner Country students. The five-year reference period for the 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline.
    The 12-month rule does not apply to Partner-country candidates who for various reasons and under various circumstances have sought refuge and received a refugee status in a Programme Country
  • Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (12-month rule) count as Programme Country students. Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.
