We were thrilled to receive a tremendous number of applications this year, with around 700 candidates applying for only 30 spots in the program. The competition was tough, and we were highly impressed by the quality of the applicants.
As you may be aware, we can only award a limited number of Erasmus Mundus scholarships each year. According to the Project No. 101082388 of the EACEA, which is implemented by the SDSI consortium, we can annually allocate
- 15 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for students from the Programme Countries,
- additional one scholarship funded by the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance,
- and additional 4-5 scholarships per year funded by the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation – Global Europe Instrument.
Please note that those who were not selected for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship will still have the opportunity to study as self-funded students. However, please keep in mind that the selection process for study fee spots is just as demanding as the regular admission process, and there are only ten study-fee spots available in the program.
We feel honored for receiving your study applications, and wish you all luck in your future endeavors. The admissions committee had a difficult month reviewing all of the applications, and we appreciate your patience and understanding throughout the process.
Once again, we thank you for your interest in the SDSI program and for sharing your talents and aspirations with us.
