The Erasmus+ programme provides EU-funded scholarships to students who have been selected by the consortia. Two categories of scholarships are available.
The scholarship for students from Programme Countries comprises: • Participation costs: up to 4,500 euros per year • Travel costs: 1,000 euros per year • Contribution to subsistence costs: 1,000 euros per month for the entire duration of the BDMA programme (24 months maximum).
The scholarship for students from Partner Countries comprises: • Participation costs: up to 9,000 euros per year • Travel costs: 2.000 or 3,000 euros per year depending on whether the student is resident of a country whose location is, respectively, less than or more than 4.000 km away from Brussels, the coordinating institution of the BDMA programme. The place of residence will be verified on the basis of the provision of documents such as a residence certificate issued in accordance with the candidate’s municipality normal registration rules or a certificate from the candidate’s place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question. Both documents must have been issued within 12 months before the BDMA official deadline for student selection. • Installation costs: 1,000 euros. • Contribution to subsistence costs: 1,000 euros per month for the entire duration of the BDMA programme (24 months maximum).
Contribution to subsistence costs will neither be given to scholarship holders for the periods of the BDMA programme (study, research, internship, or thesis preparation) spent in the country of residence of the student, nor to scholarship holders from a Partner Country for the periods of the BDMA programme spent in any Partner Country exceeding three months.
The participation costs covering the tuition fees are directly taken by the consortium. The remainder of the scholarship will be allocated to selected students as follows: • Two yearly instalments, each one covering half of the travel costs. • One instalment of 1,000 euros covering the installation costs for students from Partner Countries. • 24 monthly instalments of 1,000 euros for the subsistence costs.
The scholarship will be paid by bank transfer. All scholarship holders will receive an insurance meeting the minimum insurance requirements of the Erasmus+ programme for JMDs.
