Erasmus Mundus scholarships are mainly for Central Asian students (Bachelor to PhD) and academics to study/research/teach/work in one of the gSmart partner institutions and cover:
  • travel expenses,
  • subsistence costs,
  • insurance costs and,
  • (tuition fee).
Erasmus Mundus financial conditions are outlined in the Grant award document.

PLEASE be aware: No European or third-country student/staff candidates can benefit from a second scholarship for the same type of mobility under another project under the EMA2-STRAND1. Furthermore, candidates cannot benefit from more than one mobility activity within the same project.

Incoming students and faculty will receive monthly scholarship payments during their stay at the host institution, accommodation will be pre-arranged with the local contacts.  gSmart scholars must:
  • commit themselves to actively participate in the planned course activities,
  • spend the minimum of agreed months at the host institution,
  • perform agreed teaching/research/student tutoring activities,
  • bring concrete added value to the course and students by giving e.g. a geographical and cultural presentation of their home country,
  • contribute, after their visiting scholar activities, to the promotion and dissemination of Erasmus Mundus in general, and the gSmart programme in particular, in their Higher Education Institution and country of origin.
All involved faculty and alumni will be included in the LinkedIn community 'Geoinformatics Education in Central Asia' for continued network integration and involvement.
