The scholarships will be awarded based on academic merit. All applicants submitting their application by the scholarship application deadline on January 15, 2018, will be automatically considered.

Since only the top candidates will be awarded a scholarship, applicants are strongly encouraged to seek external funding.

In addition to the financial aid offered by the Mundus MAPP Consortium specifically, admitted students are eligible to apply for other scholarships administered by some of the partner institutions.
