IF YOU HAVE BEEN NOMINATED
You will receive a nomination e-mail. Please confirm the acceptance of the scholarship offer (YES) or refusal (NO) by e-mail within 10 days of the date of the nomination e-mail. Please note that the offer is conditional: you have to be eligible and to fulfill the requirements of the host university and the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 programme. If you don't respond within 10 days, the scholarship may be offered to another candidate.
In case of acceptance, within at least 10 days you will receive a formal Scholarship Letter, which needs to be signed by you, too. Before your mobility starts, you will be requested to sign a contract.
The nomination letter includes the details of your scholarship and the e-mail address of your SIGMA Contact Person at the host university. Please contact them about your study programme/ activities, start and end date of your mobility, admission requirements, any additional documents required, services, practical information, and the like.
Your travel and insurance will be arranged by SIGMA Coordinating Team.
Before your arrival at the host university, you need to verify your Learning Agreement/ Work Plan and have it signed by the appropriate persons at the host and home university. This will ensure transfer of credits /skills/ qualifications and recognition in your home country.
Nominees for full degree programmes need to follow the procedures of the host university.
If you have any specific questions, please contact SIGMA Coordinating Team (firstname.lastname@example.org), or SIGMA Contact Person at your host university.
Please read the instructions carefully: Instructions for SIGMA Scholarship Holders
