Scholarships for non-Erasmus Mundus students

Erasmus Taiwan Program

In past years, the Taiwanese Ministry of Education has offered scholarships to Taiwanese students on the EMMC consortia reserve lists.

Although the scholarship amounts are not comparable to the actual EM scholarship, (about Euro 12,000) it may significantly help students concerned to start their studies in the programme.

Therefore if you are a Taiwan national and have been placed on the reserve list, we will automatically forward you any announcement when it is published, generally in April each year.
