A number of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master (EMJM) scholarships are funded by the European Union in the framework of the 2021 – 2027 Erasmus+ programme (on average 15 EMJM scholarships per course edition). Not more than 10% of the available scholarships can be awarded to students with the same nationality, except for the case of nationals of targeted regions of the world, for which some additional scholarships are available (NDICI and IPA funds from the EU).

An EMJM (or equivalently an NDICI or an IPA) scholarship covers:

  1. the participation costs and tuition fees;
  2. a comprehensive insurance package for the entire period of participation in the programme;
  3. a monthly allowance of 1,400 € paid directly to the student for the whole duration of the participation in the Master course (up to a maximum of 24 months). This is intended to cover travel and subsistence costs.

Additionally, in the framework of an agreement with the Physics Department of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, the Italian Space Agency (ASI) will finance one scholarship in each of the course editions starting in the academic years 2023-24, 2024-25, and 2025-26 (course editions 2, 3, and 4).

The ASI scholarship consists of a monthly allowance of 1,400 € paid directly to the student for the whole duration of the participation in the Master course, up to a maximum of 24 months and is accompanied by a Fee Waiver covering the participation costs, tuition fees and insurance package. Hence it is fully equivalent to an EMJM scholarship.

The participation fees to be paid by self-funded students are 6,250 € per semester. This amount includes participation costs, tuition fees, and a comprehensive insurance package.

Selected students in excess of the number of available scholarships will go to a reserve ranking list. They may be offered a scholarship in case of withdrawal of scholarship awardees. Candidates from the reserve list, who wish to participate as self-funded students (or who have access to other sources of funding) may be admitted to the Master course, in order of ranking, and up to the maximum total number of 30 participants (with or without scholarship) per course edition. A few self-funded students may be offered a fee waiver covering the participation fees. In addition, some support is available for covering the individual needs of enrolled students (with or without scholarship) with documented long-term disabilities.
