Scholarship candidates must have already obtained a first higher education degree (bachelor) or demonstrate a recognized equivalent level of learning according to national legislation and practices.
The amount of the monthly allowance for these scholarships is 1000€/month during the two-years program. The students will also receive 1000€ at the beginning of the program for their installation expenses and 3000€/year for their travel expenses. The monthly allowance is not given to the students during the semesters spend in their country of origin.
- Mobility Erasmus+ scholarships. Self funded students can apply to this kind of scholarship (around 150€/month during one semester) when doing their mobility. The students benefiting from these scholarships don’t have to pay the registration fees in the University where they spend the semester.
The candidates applying to the Europhotonics Master apply for two years scholarships. Depending on their ranking in the reserve list, the students who are not selected for the scholarship can have the possibility to be enrolled as self funded students.
Scholarship candidates must have already obtained a first higher education degree (bachelor) or demonstrate a recognized equivalent level of learning according to national legislation and practices. Most students who apply are currently enrolled for their last year or session of a BSc or BEng program or equivalent. In this case the original version of the diploma will be asked after selection.
Two years scholarships will be given to the selected candidates during 2 years according to their ranking (based on academic level, CV, recommendation letter(s), letter of motivation) after the selection procedure. The number of available scholarships will depend on the budget. The candidates in the reserve list (not selected for the scholarship, but selected to participate to the program) will have the possibility to join the Master program as self-financed students and benefit from other scholarships.
