Scholarships and Fee Waivers

In the academic year 2023/2025, the EMILDAI programme will offer 23 Full Erasmus Mundus Scholarships, up to 8 Full Fee Waivers and up to 2 Partial Fee Waivers.

Full Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

EMILDAI Full Scholarships are funded by the Erasmus Mundus programme of the EU Commission. They cover the programme tuition fees and provide a monthly non-taxable stipendium of €1400 for the full length of the programme (24 months).

In order to apply for a scholarship you need to complete the application form within the first round of applications. We will select the best students based on their academic merit, professional experience and their personal statement. We will also ensure that geographical and gender balance is achieved.

If you are offered a scholarship, you will be given two weeks to accept our offer. If you don’t accept our offer, your scholarship will be offered to the next ranked student. Your scholarship will only be paid once you complete your registration at DCU.

Full and Partial Fee Waivers

If you are not offered a scholarship, we may offer you a Full or Partial Fee Waiver.

  • A Full Fee Waiver covers the costs of the Tuition Fees of your first and second year of study.
  • A Partial Fee Waiver covers the costs of the Tuition Fees of your second year of study. In this case, you will be required to pay a deposit of €1000 to secure your place, and subsequently pay the normal tuition fees for year 1 of the programme. However, you will be exempted from paying Tuition Fees in the second year of the programme.
Health insurance

All our students, regardless of their scholarship status, will benefit from comprehensive health and accident insurance covering the whole length of the programme, which can also be extended to their family members (in that case, extra costs are borne by the student).
