Erasmus Mundus scholarships for visiting scholars

Erasmus Mundus scholarships for visiting scholars are destined for scholars of recognized excellence to carry out research, teaching, or student tutoring at one of the GEMMA Consortium institutions.

The GEMMA Selection Committee chooses the best candidates on the basis of CVs, publications, academic merit, motivation, recommendations, language skills, etc. The European Commission confirms this selection and assigns the grants.

Under the Erasmus Mundus II framework, the amount of the scholar grant is 1.200 € per week for a 2 to 4 week-long visit. The total amount of the grant will vary from 2.400 € (for a two-week stay) to 4.800 € (for a four-week stay). All other possible expenses will have to be covered by the scholarship holder him/herself. The GEMMA Consortium decides on the duration of each visit and the International Relations Office establishes the grant payment scheme, which is communicated to the grantees in advance.

Mobility options

EMMC scholarships will be awarded to European and Third-Country scholars in accordance with the following criteria:

  • Third Country scholars enrolled in any third-country Higher Education Institution can make visits to any of the European partner institutions.
  • Third Country scholars can select: University of Granada (Spain, coordinator), University of Bologna (Italy), Central European University (Vienna, Austria), University of York (United Kingdom), University of Lodz (Poland), University of Oviedo (Spain) and University of Utrecht (the Netherlands).

Attention: due to technical problems, there are some mistakes in the application form. Although CEU-Hungary is offered in the form, the master GEMMA is developed in the campus based in Vienna, Austria, not in Budapest, Hungary. Also, the University of Hull is not longer available for visits, but if you are interested in a British university, you can choose our partner the University of York.

  • European scholars enrolled in one of the centers that participate in GEMMA (within any European HEI acting as a full partner of GEMMA) can make visits to any of the Consortium universities or Third-Country partner institutions.
  • European scholars can select: Any of the Consortium Universities or GEMMA Partner Universities: Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, University of Buenos Aires, The State University of Campinas in Sao Paulo, University of Chile, Florida International University, Technological Institute of Santo Domingo, National University of Colombia; National Autonomous University of Mexico; University of Columbia; University of Redlands; University of New York; UNESCO Chair in a Culture of Peace and Education of the University of Loja; Centre for Women's Studies Zagreb and UNESCO Chair on Women of the University of La Habana (Cuba).
