The Erasmus Mundus MA Women’s & Gender Studies (GEMMA) double ‘Masters of Excellence’ is now open for applications 2017-19

GEMMA ERASMUS MUNDUS SCHOLARSHIPS UNDER THE ERAMUS+ FRAMEWORK 11th edition (2017-2019)

WHAT IS GEMMA ?
The Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Women’s and Gender Studies – GEMMA - is a two-year Postgraduate interdisciplinary programme that provides high quality education and professional competencies for personnel interested in developing expertise in or intending to work in the areas of Women’s & Gender, Sexualities, Diversity and Equal Opportunities across Europe and beyond. Students benefit from international mobility as they study at two different European universities and obtain a double degree from the Home and Mobility institutions.

WHERE CAN I STUDY THE GEMMA PROGRAMME : You choose two of the following academic institutions : University of Hull (UK) – University of Granada (Spain, coordinating institution) – University of Oviedo (Spain) – University of Bologna (Italy) – University of Lodz (Poland) – University of Utrecht(Netherlands) – Central European University (Budapest, Hungary).

WHY STUDY GEMMA ?
GEMMA is the first Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe and is recognised by the European Commission as a ‘Masters of Excellence’. We have a long and successful history, being originally competitively selected by the European Commission in 2006 and again in 2011 and we were invited to apply for a third funding period in 2017. It is a programme of excellence and has been referred to by the Commission as "a model in the field of Women’s Studies and Gender Studies from a European and global perspective". At the end of their studies, GEMMA students obtain a highly prestigious double MA degree, issued by the two institutions where they have conducted their studies.

SCHOLARSHIPS
The award of Erasmus Mundus scholarships (2017-2019) is conditional on the GEMMA Master scholarship renewal under the Erasmus+ call EAC/A03/2016. The selection results of this call will be announced mid-2017, after which students will be informed whether or not they will receive an EM scholarship. Prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarships under the framework of Erasmus+ are offered to NON EUROPEAN (PARTNER COUNTRY) STUDENTS. The scholarships cover tuition fees and health insurance and include a monthly living allowance.

In addition, there are scholarships for SCHOLARS who wish to complete a research and teaching visit of 2 to 4 weeks at one of the GEMMA Consortium partner universities.

AM I ELIGIBLE TO APPLY TO THE PROGRAMME ?
Yes, if you have a previous University Bachelor degree (or its equivalent : 180 ECTS, minimum 3 years of study), and can study in the medium of English, Spanish or Italian languages. For specific eligibility conditions for scholarships and for separate requirements for visiting scholars, see the GEMMA website http://masteres.ugr.es/gemma/pages/becas.
