Applying for an Erasmus+ Scholarship
In the academic year of 2017/2018 a total of eight scholarships were available. Whether the scholarships will also be granted in the upcoming academic year 2018/2019 will depend upon a successful reapplication to Erasmus+ funding in spring 2018.
Please check our website regularly for updates.
All non-European EMLE applicants are automatically considered for one of the available scholarships unless they decline. There is no need to apply separately for the scholarships.
The scholarships will automatically be awarded to the highest ranked applicants.

Scholarships for visiting scholars to the EMLE Partner Universities
There are also scholarships for visiting scholars. Prospective visiting scholars should be established researchers in economic analysis of law with a professional affiliation to a prominent university or research institution. Non-European visiting scholars can apply to the Consortium throughout the year.
Full applications, including a CV and a detailed research project, can be sent to
This venue is NOT intended for students. Applications from prospective students or from individuals having no established academic experience in economic analysis of law will NOT be considered.
"Having a background in Philosophy and Economics, I was very keen on deepening my knowledge of the legal environment of markets and the way it functions. EMLE was the perfect fit. As a program that employs the analytical and rigorous economic approach while at the same time paying tribute to legal complexities, EMLE is not only interesting and academically challenging but also seeks to develop its students 'practical understanding' of how the economy and legal sphere work. This combined with the instruction of leading scholars in the field and a motivated as well as a gracious international student body rounds out the program perfectly. Overall, this makes me feel well-prepared for my PhD studies in the area of the economics of international law."
