Jean Monnet Scholarship

Within the framework of Turkey’s negotiation process for the full membership to the EU, the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme, aims at increasing the number of people specialized on the fields related to the EU acquis and hence supporting Turkey’s administrative capacity building efforts for the effective implementation of the EU acquis. The Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme supports academic studies at graduate or research level at a university or similar institution in one of the EU member countries.

Scholarships are granted exclusively for academic studies directly related to Turkey’s EU harmonisation process and the EU acquis.  Therefore, unlike other graduate scholarships, these scholarships will be awarded only to the studies on the acquis chapters listed below:

50% of the scholarships will be allocated to the public sector whereas the university and private sectors have 30% and 20% shares, respectively. Scholars shall only conduct academic studies at graduate or research level at a university or similar institution in one of the EU member countries for periods of minimum 3 (three), maximum 12 (twelve) months.  Amount of the scholarship covers the following (I) tuition fees, (II) living expenses (food and drink, accommodation, communication, local transportation, cultural activities, etc.), (III) fixed amount for various allowances to be paid only once (to be used for the visa-passport, educational materials, travel, study visit, registration to local authorities, health and insurance, any tax liabilities and similar expenses).
