Successful applicants will be awarded a scholarship which will cover a monthly subsistence allowance, travel costs and insurance. Participants will not be required to pay any tuition fees at the host university.
Once candidates have been selected for the program, before they start receiving their scholarship, they will be asked to subscribe a specific agreement concerning their duties and responsibilities.
Payments will be transferred to their bank account in Europe.
