Scholarships-MSc in Math Engg


Scholarships worth 48,000 euros to attend a European joint MSc in Mathematical Engineering.

MathMods is a two-year joint Master of Science (MSc) programme (120 ECTS) between 5 European universities, which aims to provide students with a cross cultural education while they get acquainted with both theory and applications of mathematical modelling in engineering.

Several cholarships are offered by the European Commission to both non- European and European students. These scholarships amount to a maximum of EUR 48,000.00 to cover the two-year expenses and are granted to the most promising applicants.

– University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis in France (UNS).


The MathMods Master’s degree course consists of four semesters. Each semester totals 30 ECTS credits. The mobility scheme involves two different locations at least. The first year is common for all students: this will guarantee an equal knowledge platform for all of them. The second year is divided into five paths, which reflect the partners’ field of excellence.

– First semester: Theory at UAQ, Italy

– Second semester: Numerics at UHH, Germany

– Third+Fourth semester: Applications at UAB / UHH / UAQ / GUT / UNSA


The language of the whole course is exclusively English at each of the five universities. Students must also attend (and acquire the relating credits of) a course of basic Italian language (first semester) and German language (second semester).

Canada Graduate Scholarships

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program was created to attract and retain world-class doctoral students and to establish Canada as a global centre of excellence in research and higher learning. It is worth $50,000 per year for three years and is available to both Canadian and international PhD students studying at Canadian universities.


The deadline date is November 6, 2013 (8:00 p.m. Eastern Time).

Canadian universities must submit all nominations to the Vanier-Banting Secretariat via ResearchNet by the deadline date.

Note: Each Canadian university has an internal deadline date for students to submit their applications. The Canadian university should be contacted for this information.

Review Process

Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships are awarded after a competitive review process.

University review

Students must be nominated by an eligible Canadian university. The scholarship liaison officer at each eligible Canadian university is responsible for coordinating the university review to determine the selected candidates and forwarding those nominations to the Vanier-Banting Secretariat —the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) or the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)—in accordance with their university’s allocation.

Selection committees

Once submitted to the Vanier-Banting Secretariat, each nomination is evaluated by an agency-specific selection committee. Each selection committee recommends the top 55 or 56 candidates (for a combined total among the three federal granting agencies of up to 167 candidates) to the Vanier-Banting steering committee based on the candidate’s academic excellence, research potential and leadership (potential and demonstrated ability).


Vanier-Banting steering committee


The Vanier-Banting steering committee, which is comprised of the presidents of the three federal granting agencies and the deputy ministers of Industry Canada and Health Canada make the final decisions on funding. Each year, the Vanier-Banting steering committee approves up to 167 Vanier Scholars for funding based on the recommendations of the agency-specific selection committees. The Vanier-Banting steering committee also oversees the program’s process, policies and results to ensure that the program achieves its objectives.


When can the Vanier CGS be taken up?


Once notified of the results, Vanier Scholars may take up their Vanier CGS on May 1, 2014, September 1, 2014 or January 1, 2015. The start date chosen must not overlap with any prior federal granting agency funding received and the Vanier Scholar must be registered for full-time studies at the Canadian university as of the Vanier CGS start date.


Supplementary Funding


Vanier Scholars who are citizens or permanent residents of Canada may also be eligible for supplementary funding. Please visit the following websites to view available opportunities:

Norwegian Quota Scholarship Scheme developing countries

Brief description:


The Norwegian government provides scholarships for students from developing countries in the South and countries of Central- and East-Europe and Central-Asia under the Quota Scheme. The goal of the Quota Scheme is to promote the internationalization of higher education and give developing country students relevant education that would also benefit their home countries when they return after graduation.

The Quota scheme normally includes courses at Master’s and Ph.D. level in addition to certain professional/Bachelor’s degrees.

Host Institution(s):

Most universities and university colleges in Norway participate in the Quota scheme. The institutions involved are allocated a certain number of students under the programme each year. View the participating institutions’ websites (PDF download).

Field(s) of study:


Any approved academic program offered by selected colleges, universities, and institutions in Norway.  Most of the Norwegian institutions offer courses and educational programmes in English.  Please refer to the websites of participating Norwegian institutions for more information on programmes they offer under the Quota Scheme.

Target group:

The Quota Scheme is for certain developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Western Balkan, East Europe and Central Asia.   See the complete list of eligible countries.

No. of Scholarships:

Currently, the scheme provides full scholarships for a total of 1,100 students, of which 800 are from developing countries and 300 from Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

Each student receives the same amount of money as a Norwegian student would do in an equivalent educational programme. About 30 per cent of the amount is given as a grant and 70 per cent as a loan. However, the loan portion is waived when the student returns to his/her home country after completing the course of study. Normally, the financial support will not not exceed a time span of four years for one definite study plan, or a combination of two programmes.

Travelling expenses for entry into Norway can be reimbursed (fixed price). Students can apply for one annual home visit if the educational programme lasts more than one year, as well as financial support for travelling expenses for field work during the course of study. When the student returns home within 3 months after finishing the course, the cost of travelling home is covered by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund.



As a student, you must apply directly from your home country. You must have stayed at least one year in your home country directly prior to the planned course of study at the Norwegian university /university college. To be eligible to apply for the Quota Scheme, you must be able to find your home country on this list.

All candidates should typically have the following basic qualifications:  Secondary school certificates or a minimum two years of higher education from their home country. Some exceptions apply for certain professional educational courses at Bachelor’s level.

Most of the study programmes offered under the Quota Scheme are taught in English. Applicants who are not native English speakers therefore must document their proficiency in English. Requirements may differ between institutions and various study programmes. Please see the university /university college’s website for more details about language requirements.

Application instructions:

The Quota Scheme as a rule only enrolls students from institutions which have collaboration agreements with Norwegian universities or university colleges. Norwegian institutions usually do not admit free movers (individual applicants) to this scheme. Only in very special cases can free movers be considered.  To find out which institutions collaborate with Norwegian institutions, please refer to the websites of the Norwegian institutions.

The start date(s) of application vary from institution to institution while the deadline for applying for the Quota scheme is usually 1 December every year.  Some courses and educational programmes may have other deadlines than this. Please contact the International Office at the university/college to which you want to apply for detailed information.

It is important to visit the official website (link found below) for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.  Please see the websites of each institution for detailed information about available courses, admission requirements and application procedures.  Applications forms are available from the websites of the universities and university colleges. All inquiries and applications should be sent directly to the International Office at the Norwegian Institution to which the student applies.
