Online application

Tip: Before you start: contact the International Relations Office of your home university. Remember that the online application forms of all Target Group 1 students will be screened and validated by the International Relations Office (IRO) of their university.  

Activating your application form

The applications are done online. Applicants have to carefully follow the steps above to determine their exact status and choose the right application form. The application forms are renewed every call so applicants who have applied before have to create a new account.

On the project website, you will first have to answer five questions. By doing so, you will automatically be directed to the right application form. After clicking on the dedicated link, you will proceed to the appropriate account set-up page. Once you have created an account you will receive an email with a link to your application form. There's no need to complete all fields, nor to upload all documents in one go: you will be able to save your data and continue later on. After completion of all required fields, a button will appear allowing you to formally submit the application. If the button does not appear it means that you forgot a required field. Please check carefully.  Only when you have pushed the submit button, your application is submitted. You can find information whether you filled out all required fields on the top of the form. Once the file is submitted, you cannot change it anymore.

If you have submitted your application, you will receive an automatic email to the address indicated in your file. This email will have your application as PDF attached, and it will mention your registration number. Please save this email.

Application forms have to be written in English and have to be submitted online before the deadline announced on the website. Incomplete applications, unreadable, blank or unsigned documents shall not be considered eligible. Applications sent by email, post or fax will not be accepted.

Supporting documents

When applying online for a scholarship, you will be asked for the documents mentioned here below. Make sure there is an English translation provided so your file can be assessed.

These documents should be scanned and then uploaded, preferably as a PDF file. Please note that if you want to upload multiple documents in 1 field, you will need to make a zip-file. Important! RAR-files cannot always be opened, so please use zip-files.

Keep the originals of the scans/copies at the ready, so you can produce these whenever they are required later on in the administrative procedure.

Be aware that the mentioned documents are those needed for the application to the consortium, but that further documents may be required for registration at the specific partner institution you will be spending your mobility period at, once you have been selected for a scholarship by the consortium.

Please note that no additional documents are accepted after the deadline, except for official language certificates (TOEFL, IELTS etc.) of which you can prove that you were registered before the application deadline. Language documents are accepted until 10 days after the deadline, after that it cannot be guaranteed that it will be taken into account in the selection procedure which starts then.
