This implies that the European Commission will grant scholarships to highly qualified third-country graduate students and scholars.
Students will be able to follow the MA Programme Euroculture, and scholars to carry out teaching and research assignments and scholarly work in the Euroculture universities participating in the Course.
Third-country students and scholars eligible for receiving an Erasmus Mundus scholarship fall into two different categories:
1. General category in which grantees can come from any third country and
2. Specific category for the academic year: the "Western Balkans and Turkey Window" in which funds are earmarked for nationals from specific countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo under UNSC Resolution 1244/99, as well as the three candidate countries, namely Croatia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey.
It is not yet known if and how many specific "Window" bursaries will be available.
Information about this will be published as soon as possible.
With regard to the general category, the Euroculture Erasmus Mundus Masters Consortium will reserve 17 places for third-country students and 4 places for third-country scholars who have been granted a scholarship for the academic year.
