Candidates interested in a mobility and the related scholarship must apply to the project calls for applications during the application period as described below. Applications must be submitted through the online application system provided on this website. Eligible applications are then evaluated and selected candidates are awarded the scholarships.

Calls for Applications are published periodically and are open for a limited period of time of minimum 45 days. The Call for Applications is the official document that must be followed to submit a correct application. All application conditions are binding as described in the Call for Applications.


Before applying it is very important to clearly understand the types and durations of the available scholarships, the eligibility conditions and the available academic programs at every host university. Before applying you are recommended to:

  • Read the section Who Can Apply of this website
