Only students who have applied to and have been accepted by the SAHC Consortium in accordance with its specific students' application and selection criteria, are eligible for a scholarship;
Scholarships are awarded to a maximum of two students from the same country;
Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application. As a result, they are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at a time;
Students who are former Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course scholarship holders are not eligible for an additional scholarship under the SAHC course.
The SAHC Erasmus Mundus Masters Course starts in early September and finishes in early August every academic year. Partner Country scholarships (formerly known as Category A scholarships) are available to Partner Country applicants applying within the 1st Call. These scholarships are directly sponsored by the European Commission, under the scope of the Erasmus+ programme. Applications must be submitted no later than January 20, 2017. Partner Country scholarships within the SAHC Master Course equal 24,000 / 25,000 Euro as follows:
· participation costs: 9,000 Euro
· travel costs: 2,000 Euro (applicant's country is less than 4,000 km away from Portugal)
or 3,000 Euro (applicant's country is 4,000 km or more away from Portugal)
· installation costs: 1,000 Euro
· subsistence costs: 1,000 Euro per month for the entire duration of the SAHC programme
Any selected applicant must bear in mind that, if selected to a scholarship, the confirmation of acceptance of the scholarship by the student implies automatically that other interested applicants will not receive a scholarship, as the number of applicants is much larger than the number of grants. Therefore, the SAHC Consortium will request to all students selected for a scholarship the payment of a deposit of 250 Euro to confirm their acceptance of the scholarship and enrolment in the Master Course. This deposit will be returned to students only if they register at the University. The only purpose of this measure is to avoid filling up the Master Course places with students that will not finally participate and that will compromise the enrolment of other interested students.
