Erasmus Mundus – Al Idrisi II Scholarship Scheme 2016 for Exchange & Co-Operation between Europe and North Africa.

Application Deadline: 12 January 2016

Erasmus Mundus – Al Idrisi II: A scholarship scheme for exchange and cooperation between Europe and North Africa is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 partnership for Lot 1 (Algeria, Egypt, Ligya, Morocco, Tunisia) that will establish an active institution-based mobility network among 19 North African and EU partner universities and 6 associate universities supported by 3 associate institutions and the Ministries of Higher Education in the region.

The project will allow undergraduate, master and doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and academic and administrative staff to gain valuable experience, knowledge and contacts abroad. Some North African students will even have the possibility to return to their home countries holding a relevant master or doctoral degree.

The project focuses strongly on regional needs in North Africa and the development of specific and relevant areas that were defined by the partners. Furthermore, the project will provide improved education and training opportunities for vulnerable groups and socio- economically disadvantaged students and promote equal access to higher education for students from less developed areas.

Erasmus Mundus – Al Idrisi II is a project that provides scholarships for undergraduates, master and doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, academic and administrative staff. The grants are financed by the European Commission and include a monthly subsistence allowance, travel expenses, insurance costs and tuition fees if applicable.
