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:
|Free Movement of Workers
Free Movement of Goods
Right of Establishment and Freedom to Provide Services
Free Movement of Capital
Intellectual Property Law
Information Society and Media
Agriculture and Rural Development
|Food Safety, Veterinary and Phytosanitary Policy
Economic Criteria or Economic and Monetary Policy
Social Policy and Employment
Enterprise and Industrial Policy
|Regional Policy and Coordination of Structural Instruments
Judiciary and Fundamental Rights
Justice, Freedom and Security
Science and Research
Education and Culture
Consumer and Health Protection
Common Trade Policy (Customs Union and/or External Relations)
Foreign, Security and Defence Policy
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).
Candidates, who meet the necessary conditions, in particular language requirements, are supposed to obtain an unconditional acceptance letter from an academic program of the EU member states. Candidates who are successful in written and oral examinations are granted under the scholarship program.
