9. I want to apply to a mobility from Europe to Latin America, but I do not hold a EU nationality. Am I eligible?
In order to be eligible, you need to hold the nationality of one of the EU Member States:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
If you do not hold one of these nationalities, you unfortunately are not eligible for an CRUZ DEL SUR scholarship. This is a requirement set by European Commission, the CRUZ DEL SUR Coordination cannot influence.
10. Can I still apply if I have been granted an Erasmus Mundus scholarship before?
The European Commission has set very clear rules about this: you can apply for a CRUZ DEL SUR scholarship if you have benefitted from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship in a different project and for a different type of mobility. If your previous scholarship was not with Erasmus Mundus, the mobility type requirement does not apply. Please, keep in mind that Latin American applicants in Target Group 1 and 2 cannot have spent/carried out their main activity in Europe for more than 12 months over the past 5 years.
11. Am I still eligible for a CRUZ DEL SUR scholarship if I am also applying within other Erasmus Mundus Action 2 projects?
You can apply for scholarships within as many Erasmus Mundus projects as you like. In fact, we recommend this in order to increase your chances, since these scholarships are highly selective and competitive. Should you be selected within more than one project, you would of course need to choose, because you cannot combine two mobilities from different Erasmus Mundus projects. We do appreciate it if you mention in your application that you are applying to other scholarships, but this is not a requirement.
