AWARDING PROCEDURE

A Joint Board consisting of academic/administrative representatives of all universities will review the candidacies.

Applicants that fulfil the admission criteria will be ranked according to the selection criteria. A preliminary ranking list and a reserve list will be defined accordingly.

The Joint Board will interview applicants in the preliminary ranking list. Applicants of the preliminary reserve list can be interviewed upon decision of the Joint Board.

After the interviews, a final ranking list and reserve list are formed. Applicants in the final ranking list will be awarded an Erasmus Mundus scholarship according to the availability in each mobility track (see the call) and the order of the ranking list. If no scholarship for the mobility track chosen by an applicant of the ranking list is available, the applicant will be offered a scholarship for a different mobility track. In case of applicant’s refusal or no answer by the confirmation deadline, the first applicant of the finalised reserve list will be offered the scholarship. The selection will continue iteratively until all scholarships have been allocated.

Applicants in the reserve list will be awarded an Erasmus Mundus scholarship only in case of refusal of applicants in the ranking list.

Applicants of the ranking list must communicate the acceptance and participation to the programme by the date specified in the call. Applicants in the reserve list will be notified of available scholarships and confirm their acceptance and participation to the programme as specified in the call.

Applicants that fulfil the admission requirements but do not belong to the ranking and reserve list are not awarded an Erasmus Mundus scholarship and can participate to the EMSE programme as self-paying
