Visiting Academic Scholars

The IMAESC Consortium will award scholarships to least four invited scholars and/or guest lecturers for a total minimum of eight weeks in the 2019-2021, 2020-2022 and 2021-2023 editions of the programme.   Scholars' mobility is considered eligible between the partners of the IMAESC Consortium (including to/from associated partners) and from an organisation outside the Consortium, provided it is clearly linked to the IMAESC course.  Scholars paid by other EU funds may not apply.

Applications should be made using the Visiting Scholar Application Form and sent by email to with the subject heading "Visiting Scholar Application".

 Scholars/guest lecturers should:

  • demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience 
  • bring concrete added value to the EMJMD 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 IMAESC 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 IMAESC 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 2021-2023 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.
