**Contribution to student travel costs depend on the place of residence of a scholarship holder. The exact amount of the contribution to travel costs varies from 2.000€ per year for a scholarship holder, resident in a partner country less than 4000 km from the University of Bonn to 3.000€ per year for a scholarship holder, resident in a partner country more than 4000 km from the University of Bonn. The contribution to student travel costs for a scholarship holder resident in a programme country amounts to 1.000€ per year.

***Contribution to subsistence costs is 1.000€ per month for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme (up to 24 months maximum). Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to the scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods (study/research/placement/thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence, nor to scholarship holders from a Partner Country for the EMJMD periods exceeding one trimester (i.e. 3 months or the equivalent of 15 ECTS credits) spent in any Partner Country.

****Contribution to student installation cost is offered only to students resident in a partner country (one-off payment of 1.000€). It is an incentive to help covering the additional costs related to the issuing of visas, residence permits, etc. as well as the temporary accommodation needs upon arrival in the first programme country.
