Erasmus Mundus is a programme funded by the European Commission. Its aims are to encourage mobility (long-term and short-term) of students and staff, to attract the best talents to Europe and to promote European higher education worldwide.

The Master in Applied Ecohydrology provides 22 scholarships funded by Erasmus Mundus to students from all nationalities. The Erasmus Mundus scholarship is a full scholarship that includes the programme tuition fees, a monthly allowance and travel costs up to a total of 49,000 euro for the full 2-year programme. The tuition fee is automatically deduced from the scholarship.

The student receives EUR 1,000/month allowance as support for housing and general subsistence. Students do not receive this monthly allowance when staying in their home country.

Students also receive a travel allowance of up to EUR 3,000 per year depending on the student’s country of residence. Programme country students receive 1,000 euros per year. Students from partner countries less than 4000km from the University of Algarve will receive 2,000 euros per year, while students from partner countries more than 4000km from the University of Algarve will receive 3,000 euros per year.
