Call for Applications: TROPIMUNDO Master Scholarship programme 2017-2018

“The Université libre de Bruxelles is coordinating the Erasmus Mundus TROPIMUNDO Master programme, for which the European Commission offers a certain number of fully covering scholarships for EU and non-EU students. There are no country restrictions whatsoever.

This information is of particular importance for BIOLOGY students seeking a scholarship to study abroad.

TROPIMUNDO is the first International Master in Tropical Biodiversity and Ecosystems (2 years, 120 ECTS) that allows students to delve into the interlinked ecosystems under threat by spending a full second semester of course work and field schools in the African rainforest, the Asian mangrove forest or the terrestrial and marine Australian humid wet tropics, and a fourth semester dedicated to thesis work related to tropical biodiversity and ecosystems. The other two semesters are covering basic and specialized courses in Belgium, Italy, France and French Guyana.

The European Commission provides a certain number of full scholarships for students from EU and non-EU students. Selected scholarship holders will have their tuition fees and mobility covered in addition to receiving full insurance and monthly allocations.

Applications for 2017-2018 are now open and the deadline for applications is 30 November 2016.
