Eligibility criteria

  • Fee-waivers are offered to applicants to COSI programme. To benefit from this fee-waiver, you must have applied, been selected in the reserve list (i.e. successful applicants who have not been selected for an E+EMJMD scholarship) and then have administratively enrolled in the COSI programme. Therefore, administrative and academic eligibility criteria for COSI selection apply.
  • Applicants should apply to COSI programme before the first deadline to allow selection committee to consider them for a fee-waiver.
  • Applicants may benefit from both a fee-waiver and a COSI scholarship but cannot be both recipient of an E+EMJMD scholarship and a fee-waiver.

Selection criteria

How to apply

  • There is no specific / separate application process to be considered for this scholarship, providing the applicant apply before the first deadline.
  • When the selection outcomes (/results) are notified, applicants are informed by email if they are on the main list (i.e. successful applicants to COSI programme with an E+EMJMD scholarship) or on the reserve list (i.e. successful applicants to COSI programme with or without COSI scholarship and/or a fee-waiver).
  • Re-allocation of fee-waivers:
    • Successful applicants on the reserve list are notified of their absolute rank by order of merit in the reserve list. COSI scholarships and Fee-waivers are attributed to best applicants on this list. Applicants on the reserve list without scholarships may decided to join the programme as self-financed students (no scholarship from the Consortium).
    • However, in case a successful applicant on the main list decide not to join the programme before the induction week, the E+ EMJMD scholarship can be re-allocated to best-ranked students on the reserve list. Consequently an additional fee-waiver become available, that will be in turn re-allocated to best applicants on the reserve list.
    • Successful applicants should confirm to the Consortium their acceptance of the fee-waiver or willingness to join the Programme without scholarship in due time.
    • Non-successful applicants or successful student without scholarships attributed can appeal of the selection committee decisions.

Scholarship disbursement

  • Fee-waivers are directly managed by the Consortium.
  • Fee-waiver disbursement is subject to the conclusion and satisfactory fulfillment of the student agreement between the student and the COSI consortium.
  • Upon formal agreement with the student at the time of signature of the student agreement, the Coordinating Institution will deduct the fee-waiver directly from the contribution to participation costs at the beginning of each academic year. The remaining 50% of the participation costs should be paid in due time.

Fee-waivers terms of references are fixed on the COSI student agreement.
