Erasmus + Financial Support and Scholarships
It is possible to receive Erasmus+ financial support (EMJMD scholarships) for the IMBRSea programme. During the online application process, you can indicate if you wish to apply for an EMJMD scholarship. Once you have been admitted to the programme, you will be informed if you have been selected for a scholarship.
The scholarship covers your participation costs, including your tuition fee and full insurance coverage. It also includes a contribution towards your travel and installation costs, as well as a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the study programme.
The number of scholarships rewarded varies from year to year, with approximately 20 Erasmus+ scholarships awarded annually. These include an average of 3-5 scholarships for students from programme countries and approximately 15-17 scholarships for students from partner countries.
Additional scholarships are added during the course of the year, so be sure to keep an eye on the Erasmus+ Website for additional funding opportunities.

Erasmus + Mobility Grants
Students can make use of Erasmus+ Mobility grants to support a part of the mobility in the program. These grants are offered via the different participating universities. Regulations, selection success and grant amounts depend fully on each university.
Who is eligible for applying for an Erasmus+ Mobility Grant?
All students enrolled in the program that do not benefit from another Erasmus+ grant are eligible to apply for a grant.
Where should I apply and what are the mechanisms?
Students apply at one of the first year universities for a grant to study abroad during the third semester. In practice students apply at the semester 1 university (Ghent, Algarve, Oviedo, Brest, Ancona or Galway). At each university deadlines and selection mechanisms are clearly different.
Please note that these grants support mobility. Since students apply at the semester 1 university, the grant cannot be obtained in case you study in the same country in the first and third semester.
