With the transition from Erasmus Mundus II (2009-2013) to the Erasmus+ (2014-2020) Programme, the definition of the categories of fellowships have changed from A and B to "Partner country" and "Programme country" respectively. Special geographic windows no longer apply.
Two types of fellowships are available for selected students: Programme country and Partner country.
What candidate am I? Which fellowship can I apply for?
Your category depends on your citizenship and your country of residence over the last 5 years (until Feb. 27th 2016).
You can apply for a "Programme country" fellowship if:
- you are EITHER citizen of a Programme country,
- OR resident or have carried out your main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in at least one of the Programme countries.
You can apply for a "Partner country" fellowship if:
- you are citizen of a category Partner country,
- and NOT resident nor have carried out your main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in at least one of the Programme countries mentioned above.
(The residency rule does not apply ot the candidates who, for various reasons and under various circumstances, have sought refugee status in a Programme Country and also to former EMMC scholarship holders.)
