  • individuals who have already benefited from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another Erasmus Mundus Master Course ;
  • students benefiting from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship can not be awarded another Community grant ;
  • Erasmus Mundus scholarships are awarded exclusively for a full-time enrolment in one of the course editions ;
  • without prejudice to high academic standards, the consortium respects equality issues, such as equal gender participation, equal opportunity, including students with special needs, and geographical diversity : No more than two of the students selected for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship should have the same nationality.
