Scholarships for a full MSc in Materials Science and Electrochemistry


The MESC+ Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Materials Science and Electrochemistry is a two-year program in Materials Science and Electrochemistry taught entirely in English and involving five universities from four European countries (France, Poland, Slovenia, and Spain), two universities from the United States and Australia, a European Research Institute (ALISTORE), the French Network on Energy Storage (RS2E), the Slovenian National Institute of Chemistry (NIC), and a leading Research Center in Spain (CIC Energigune).
It is led by a group of world-renowned members of energy-related materials research laboratories that collaborate closely through many European and trans-European projects.
MESC+ (Mobility Scheme for Children with Special Needs) is a
MESC+ is made up of three semesters of coursework and a fourth semester in a research lab for the Master’s thesis.
MESC+ students will be able to study in up to four different countries over the course of two years.
Warsaw (Poland), Toulouse (France), Amiens (France), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Bilbao (Spain), Philadelphia (USA), Melbourne (Australia), Alistore (International), RS2E (France), NIC (Slovenia), and CIC ENERGIGUNE are among them (Spain).
• The Master’s Course consists of three semesters of coursework plus a 6-month Master’s Thesis in a research laboratory in Europe, the United States, or Australia.
• Depending on their mobility options, students can study in up to four different countries in two years.
The first semester is spent in Poland (WUT) for the entire class, while the second semester is spent in France (UPS).
• The third semester is spent in either Bilbao, Spain, or Ljubljana, Slovenia, or Paris, France (Amiens).
• Electrochemistry foundations, materials science, solid state chemistry and energy storage, materials technology and processing, energy conversion, conducting polymers, and nanomaterials synthesis are among the core subjects.
Students take specialized units focused on system engineering and prototyping during semester 3 to get a better understanding of areas where the participating universities and research institutions have world-class competence.
• For international and European students, the Master’s Course provides comprehensive and innovative training. Successful students get a Joint Diploma as well as national Master’s degrees from the Consortium’s universities, which are recognized in each of the countries visited.
• The admissions requirements for this course are extremely stringent.
Candidates can apply for EMJMD, MESC+ partner industrial scholarships, or as self-funded students.
• A bachelor’s degree in science, ideally in physical chemistry, materials science, or electrochemistry, is required.
Students’ academic records will be inspected closely, and applicants will be asked to justify their motivations for visiting Europe.
Scholarships for a full MSc in Materials Science and Electrochemistry
For the following cohort, there will be 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships available for non-EU students and eight for EU students.
For non-EU students, a full scholarship includes:
• The whole year’s tuition expenses (9000€)
• A monthly stipend of 1000€ for living expenses • A 1000€ installation fee (lump sum at arrival)
• Travel costs (3000€ per year, lump sum)
• A health insurance policy (worth 500€ each year)
The following items are included in a full scholarship for EU students: • Full tuition expenses (4000€ per year)
• A monthly budget of 1000€ for living expenses • A yearly allowance of 1000€ for travel costs 500€/year
Scholarships from the Consortium
• The consortium provides scholarships to both EU and non-EU applicants for the course.
The number (3-4) and value of scholarships will be determined based on fund availability.
• It will be given based on the quality of the candidate’s CV and motivation.
• It is not possible to receive a complete scholarship.
We prefer to award half scholarships to a large number of applicants rather than complete scholarships to a select few.
The Consortium scholarship may cover (one or two, but not all) of the following:
• Tuition expenses (up to 9000€ per year for a two-year period).
• Health insurance is provided for free.
• Travel expenses: up to 500€
• Monthly living and housing allowance (200-300€/month).
Scholarships for Academics
Academic scholarships are awarded to deserving candidates.
These scholarships will cover a portion of tuition costs as well as about 500€ per month for EU students and 850€ per month for non-EU students.
• Additional scholarships may be available based on the country of the program and other factors.
Apply by February 22nd.
