Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarship: International Master of Science in Rural Development [Full scholarship]

Full Erasmus Mundus scholarships are now available for students from all nationalities!

The scholarships cover your tuition fee, 1000 euro monthly allowance and a contribution to be used for travel and installation costs during the programme.

Each year an average of 20 of the top applicants are selected for these scholarships! The application for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship is integrated into the online application procedure for IMRD.


The goal of IMRD is to train professionals that contribute to solving socio-economic, natural resource and agricultural challenges in rural communities. The multi-disciplinary approach, the comparative study of EU and non-EU models, a flexible study programme and the unique mobility requirements stimulate students to gain a wide perspective of Rural Development and build an international network.

It is a master programme covering four semesters (2 years) and 120 ECTS. It is jointly organised by 6 core European partners and 9 associated partners from outside Europe.

The programme starts every year early September at Ghent University (Belgium) with a preparatory course “BePreP” and kick-off event. The programme consists of 5 Modules, with the option of an internship, each of which can be followed at a different location.

The EMJMD student scholarships include:

  • a contribution to the students’ participation costs (including the tuition fees, library and laboratory costs, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to the students’ participation in the Master);
  • a contribution to student travel and installation costs;
  • a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme.

Details on the EMJMD student scholarship amounts are given in the LINK.
