EMAIL

The EMAIL project is one of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2* programs for the cooperation between the EU and Israel in higher education. EMAIL has three different phases in the form of 3 different consortia (EMAIL, EMAIL II and EMAIL III). The EMAIL project provides grants to excellent candidates from Israel to the partner institutions in the EU and from the EU to the partner institutions in Israel within all these three projects. The EMAIL project offers scholarships for bachelor, master’s, doctoral and post doctoral students as well as mobility possibilities for academic and non-academic staff members. All the 3 different EMAIL projects are funded through the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 program* of the European Union and coordinated by the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic. For more information, please check Who can apply? and How to Apply? sections of the EMAIL website.
*The Erasmus Mundus Action 2 program fosters institutional co-operation in the field of higher education between the European Union and non-EU countries through student and academic exchanges.

Becas Chile

BECAS CHILE was launched on October 23rd 2008 with the aim of establishing a unified, long-term human capital formation policy for sending students to the best universities around the globe. The program aims to train approximately 30,000 students in the world’s top universities by the year 2017. The surge in numbers implies an historic effort. As recently as 2005, less than two hundred students were granted a government scholarship to study abroad. Since 2006 those figures have increased on a yearly basis. By 2010, around three thousand new students will have studied abroad with a government supported scholarship every year. For more information click here
