Visiting Scholars

The IDOH Consortium will award scholarships to least four invited scholars and/or guest lecturers for a total minimum of eight weeks in the 2017-2019, 2018-2020 and 2019-2021 editions of the programme. Scholars may be from the partners of the IDOH Consortium (including from associated partners) or from an organisation outside the Consortium, provided it is clearly linked to the IDOH course. Scholars paid by other EU funds may not apply.

The deadline for the next round of applications is 30 September 2017. Applications should be made using the Visiting Scholar Application Form and sent by email to with the subject heading "Visiting Scholar Application".

Guest lecturers will be selected by the IDOH Co-ordinating Committee.

Scholars/guest lecturers should:

  • demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience
  • bring concrete added value to the EMJMD intake in terms of student-centred teaching/lecturing, research activities, Master thesis support, academic/professional networking, etc
  • contribute, after their visiting scholar activities, to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme in general, and the IDOH in particular, in their university and country of origin. Scholars will be asked to write a short report/testimonial for use on the Consortium website and for inclusion in reports to the EACEA.

Priority may be given to applicants who wish to work on a joint research funding application/project or joint publication in collaboration with academic(s) at the proposed EMJMD IDOH host university.
