Visiting Scholars

Visiting Academic Scholarships

The IMCEERES Consortium will award scholarships to at least four invited scholars and/or guest lecturers for a total minimum of eight weeks in the 2018-2020 edition of the programme.   Scholars’ mobility is considered eligible between the partners of the IMCEERES Consortium (including to/from associated partners) and from an organisation outside the Consortium, provided it is clearly linked to the IMCEERES course.  Scholars paid by other EU funds may not apply.

Application Form for Visiting Scholars/Guest Lecturers

 Scholars/guest lecturers should:

  • demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience
  • bring concrete added value to the EMMC intake in terms of student-centred teaching/lecturing, research activities, Master thesis support, academic/professional networking, etc
  • contribute, after their visiting scholar activities, to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme in General, and the IMCEERES in particular, in their university and country of origin.

Scholars will be asked to write a short report/testimonial for use on the Consortium website and for inclusion in reports to the EACEA.

Priority will be given to applicants who wish to work on a joint research funding application/project or joint publication in collaboration with academic(s) at the proposed EM IMCEERES host university.

Duration and Grant

Scholars holding an Erasmus Mundus scholarship will normally spend  1 – 2 weeks at one of the Consortium’s partner universities.

The remuneration for visiting scholars will be determined by the Consortium for each edition and will include all travel, accommodation and additional subsistence costs.

The 2018-2020 award will comprise actual travel (economy) and accommodation costs plus a subsistence allowance of €250 per week.

The host university will provide office space and assistance with travel and accommodation arrangements.
