Consortium grants for academic years 2024-2026

The emPLANT+ consortium is offering 3 full grants for participation costs for academic years 2024-2026 (= emPLANT+ intake 4).

Which means that students selected to obtain these 3 grants must be able to pay for their own travel expenses, administrative fees, living expenses and all personal expenses during the two years of the emPLANT+ program.

Students selected to obtain these participation costs grants must spend one year in at least one of the following consortium universities:

  • Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle (ULS) in France
  • Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Sweden
  • Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) in Spain

Applicants interested in applying for these 3 grants must apply during the first call for applications dedicated to scholarship applicants. This call is open from October 1st, 2023 to January 9th, 2024. Interested applicants must tick a special box in the application form. Before ticking that box, be sure that you can afford to pay all expenses apart from the participation costs.

National and International scholarships

Some students can receive grants from:

  • their government
  • their University of origin
  • their local administrations: Please consult your local authorities for further details about these grants

Several grants exist in Europe so if you’re a prospective international student planning to study in Europe at master’s level (such as emPLANT+), you might be eligible for a scholarship.

Please check the different possibilities on the Campus France website and Top Universities website.

If you are concerned by one of the possible scholarship and meet all requirements, we invite you to apply for one of those scholarships independently from your application to emPLANT+.
